Terri-Lee Oleniuk’s practice focuses on project-related issues in natural resource development and regulatory, environmental and Aboriginal law. Her recent work includes representing BluEarth Renewables in the first hearing into development of an Alberta wind farm; playing a key role in securing approvals for the Lower Churchill hydroelectric project for Nalcor Energy — a $10.3-billion, 3,000-megawatt dam project opposed by ENGOs, Aboriginal groups and landowners, which withstood eight separate court challenges by ENGOs and Aboriginal groups; and managing the hearing process for Kinder Morgan’s proposed $6.8-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, including leading preparation of the final 450-page argument, after which the NEB recommended approval; and leading TransCanada’s submission to the NEB hearing on pipeline abandonment. Terri-Lee has served 10-plus years as Board Chair at the Cerebral Palsy Association in Alberta.
