Alberta Premier Jim Prentice is scheduled to meet with his Ontario and Quebec counterparts this week to lobby for support of the Energy East pipeline.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Premier Philippe Couillard of Quebec have established a list of conditions over the project.

It includes having contingency plans and emergency response programs in place, making sure First Nations are consulted and that proponents consider the project's environmental impact and greenhouse gas emissions.

Prentice says he intends to meet with both premiers face-to-face to discuss the proposed $12-billion pipeline.

He says it is a nation-building project and other regions of Energy East will reap the financial benefits of it as well.

The pipeline would carry more than one million barrels of western crude daily from Alberta and Saskatchewan to oil refineries in Eastern Canada.
