Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractIn this transcription of his keynote address given at the thirty-seventh annual Research Seminar of the Canadian Petroleum Law Foundation in Jasper, Alberta, Roland Priddle, former Chairman of the National Energy Board provides an historical summary of the regulatory role of the NEB. Starting with Canada s first Royal Commission on Energy, continuing with the energy crisis of the 1970s, through to the deregulation of the 1980s, Mr. Priddle describes numerous events and circumstances which have shaped the NEB's regulatory policies. The origins of the environment in which today's pipelines operate are traced, and the development of NEB's policies to address changing economic and political circumstances is described.
