Watson Goepel LLP Associate Counsel and energy lawyer Warren Brazier was asked to comment on the proposed federal Greenhouse Gas (GHG) regulations by the Alaska Highway News. Warren confirmed that the expansion of the NEB review process to consider upstream emissions marks an important shift in policy that is certain to have an impact on BC’s oil and gas industry. A secondary impact of the new regulations could be to push oil and gas producers to cut their emissions by shifting from fossil fuels to the BC Hydro grid to power their processing plants and drilling operations. Warren also noted that the spin off could well be to increase demand for independent power producers.
