Shellburn Berthing Dolphin Replacement Project - PER No. 20-012-05 - Extension - Public comments invited

The Proposed Project Amendment

Shell Canada Products Ltd. proposes to carry out physical activities related to the replacement of four existing berthing dolphins and the installation of a fifth berthing dolphin at the Shellburn facility up until February 28, 2024. This would require an extension to the approved project permit (PER 20-012-04), which has an expiry date of June 30, 2023. 

In-water works have been planned to occur during least-risk windows for the protection of fish and fish habitat in 2020-2021, 2021-2022, and 2022-2023. Based on the latest schedule, a fourth in-water construction season is needed to complete the project. There are no changes to construction activities or the scope of the work outlined in the approved permit (available here).
