2008

Alton Natural Gas Storage reaches an agreement with Nova Scotia Environment to apply for Alton's Industrial Permit in two phases. The two phases were necessary to streamline the approval process to allow for the removal of trees over the water pipeline route and cavern facility site. In order to meet the environmental approval conditions and remain on target with the project schedule, the right of way was cleared in April 2008. Option Easement Agreements were acquired for this same right of way.
