Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipelines has filed commercial agreements with Canada's National Energy Board that fully subscribe for long term service and capacity on both the proposed crude oil export pipeline and the condensate import pipeline.

After negotiations with Canadian producers and Asian markets, the confidential parties have agreed on commercial terms relating to the long term use of the facilities, the company said.

The Northern Gateway Project is a proposed $5.5bn 1,177km twin pipeline system and marine terminal.

The project is currently under regulatory review and will transport 525,000 barrels per day (bpd) of oil for export and import 193,000bpd of condensate.

Enbridge executive vice president of western access Janet Holder said commercial support for the project from both Canadian oil producers and Asian markets reinforces the international importance of the project to Canada.
