Shell Canada has received regulatory approval to proceed with its $2bn Jackpine oilsands project. However, 19 conditions relating to mining operations, resource conservation and management of the tailings have been attached to the approval from a joint panel of Alberta’s energy regulator and the federal Environmental Assessment Agency. Jackpine is a proposed second mine on Shell’s large exploration and development lease in northeastern Alberta. It is believed to contain 5bn barrels of recoverable bitumen or oily mud. Even with regulatory go-ahead, Shell does not expect to build the open-pit mine, pipeline and co-generation electrical facility until at least 2010, after expanding its current Muskeg River mine.
