Hydro 10 Proceedings of the 6th Annual British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium in Vernon, BC, 1982. The Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation "REGULATED ENERGY PROJECTS UNDER PART 2 (SECTION 16) OF THE ACT "Regulated projects" are defined according to the amount of energy used or involved in production or transmission. This includes new projects and additions to existing projects falling within defined limits, as follows: Transmission Lines         - 500 kV or higher Pipelines - capable of transporting 16 pj per year Transshipment or - capable of storing 3 pj energy equivalent Storage Facilities to 482,000 barrels of crude oil or 2.8 billion cubic feet of natural gas Electricity - a hydro or thermal power plant, or an addition to a plant, of 20 MW or higher Energy Use - any new project capable of using 3 pj per year, or the addition of 3 pj to an exist- ing project Other - an  undertaking  of  any  kind  that  the Lieutenant Governor in Council designates to be significant in the matter of energy 11 Proceedings of the 6th Annual British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium in Vernon, BC, 1982. The Technical and Research Committee on Reclamation ENERGY REVIEW PROCESS - The "Energy Review Process" describes the process for review of applications under the Utilities Commission Act. - Intended to evaluate proposals for development and use of B.C.'s energy resources, primarily in terms of energy and environment policies. Aim is toward integration and streamlining. - The process is used to work with applicants and to assist Ministers in making "Disposition Decisions" under Section 19 of the above Act. Decisions set subsequent course. 12 Proceedings of the 6th Annual British Columbia Mine Reclamation Symposium in Vernon, BC, 1982.
