OTTAWA — Federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says he still believes the contentious Northern Gateway oilsands pipeline can be built, but recognizes the federal government has a substantial sales job ahead of it in 2013.

The proposed $6-billion Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline would transport oilsands crude from northern Alberta to the port of Kitimat, B.C., where the product would be loaded onto tankers and shipped to Asian markets.

“I am still of the belief that we can get this done, on the assumption, of course, that it passes regulatory muster,” Oliver said in an interview with Postmedia News.
