Thus oil industry as a whole has chances of profit in its operations, but that is limited and is dependent on a lot of external factors. Many of such factors contribute in resisting the industry’s overall enhancement. The Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, a $5.5 billion oil sands pipeline produced by Enbridge oil, planned to be running from Bruderheim, Alta., to Kitimat, on B.C.’s North Coast, hit roadblock when external factors like landowners started opposing its implementation. There was significant opposition to the implementation of the Northern Gateway pipeline, in that nine Coastal First Nations had declared a ban on oil tanker and pipeline under their traditional laws on March, 2010. No First Nations groups had officially indicated their support towards the pipeline project. The project itself had its shortcomings in its own strategies. The Northern Gateway application statements had made it clear that no long-term shipper agreement had been concluded. In fact, the company had stated that providing any shipping agreements before the approval of the project was not necessary at all, which is an unexpected and a rather disappointing statement from a company planning an export pipeline, since projects are not approved without such agreements. Enbridge’s report had stated that it had attained a capital of 100 million dollars from sources as a sign of go ahead with its project. While the exact sources of donations were refrained from being mentioned, the company referred to them as “Funding Participants,” and that they were simply a group of Eastern Asian refiners and Western Canadian Oil manufacturers with specific identities being eschewed from disclosure. These lacking of transparencies are something that TransCanada gives extra effort to be clear of, however the factor of conflict with landowners is something that is not directly in the company’s hands.
