Trans Mountain seeks stricter injunction at terminals in British Columbia

Trans Mountain seeks stricter injunction at terminals in British Columbia Trans Mountain seeks stricter injunction at terminals in British Columbia

Lawyers for Trans Mountain will be back in court today to ask a British Columbia judge to amend an injunction order limiting people from protesting within five metres of two work sites in Burnaby.

But, given the level of controversy surrounding construction, that's a hefty "if".

Kinder Morgan Inc. created its Canadian subsidiary in a $1.7-billion initial public offering a year ago.

Kinder Morgan Canada says the expansion project originated in response to requests from oil shippers to help them reach new markets by expanding the capacity of North America's only pipeline with access to the West Coast.

Presumably, the government will also relieve Kinder Morgan of its operations and maintenance expenses, which amounted to $216.5 million a year ago.

On the face of it, the federal government's purchase of Kinder Morgan Canada's pipeline assets is a good deal, especially for Kinder Morgan shareholders, including those in a much-derided Texas boardroom.

By way of asserting its resolve to keep the project moving ahead, the government said it would provide funding for the 2018 construction season through loan guarantees. "This is a great day, not only for our company but for Canada", CEO Steve Kean said. "The only thing that has changed now is it has gone from private liability to public liability and that's concerning", he said.

Since being elected in 2015, the federal government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has sought to balance a national climate change plan - including carbon pricing, emissions caps and investment in renewable energy - with the continued development of the oil sands, one of the country's largest economic engines.

Once built, the assets will be marketable, agreed Robert Fitzmartyn, an analyst with Calgary-based GMP First Energy Capital, who added the government might well decide to sell to a non-traditional buyer. "Maybe, because the federal government might have a. different capital return threshold than a private entity might have".

Unfortunately for the federal Liberals, those in BC who voted for them in the 2015 federal election are largely opposed to their decision to buy the pipeline, 49 per cent opposed vs. 40 per cent support. Also, the 26 lenders that Kinder Morgan negotiated with agreed to exempt the pipeline company from penalties on loans if the project was delayed or obstructed because of political problems.

The two companies have declined comment on the issue.

Kinder Morgan Canada (TSE:KML) had its price target decreased by Royal Bank of Canada from C$24.00 to C$18.00 in a research report released on Wednesday. "We are absolutely shocked and appalled that Canada is willingly investing taxpayers' money in such a highly controversial fossil fuel expansion project", Grand Chief Stewart Philip, president of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs, told the Toronto Star.

It takes money to make money. "That would be my criticism".
