On Wednesday, Aug. 28, the National Energy Board (NEB) became the Canada Energy Regulator (CER). For further information please visit our Implementing the Canadian Energy Regulator Act information page

Agricultural Vehicles

The DPR – Authorizations provides that persons operating agricultural vehicles or mobile equipment across pipelines may do so in low-risk areas, under certain conditions (section 13).

This provides clarity for landowners, land users, and pipeline companies to identify situations where agricultural vehicles and mobile equipment can safely cross NEB-regulated pipelines without the need for further consent from the pipeline company.

IMPORTANT: If landowners/users are unsure if all of the conditions will be met in relation to the proposed agricultural activity or are unsure if the proposed agricultural activity could jeopardize the safe and secure operation of the pipeline, they must contact the pipeline company before crossing the pipeline with agricultural vehicles or mobile equipment.
