The National Energy Board has thrown out previous rulings on TransCanada's Energy East pipeline and will start the process over from scratch.

"The new hearing panel assigned to review the Energy East and Eastern Mainline applications has voided all decisions made by the previous hearing panel," the board said in a short release Friday. "These decisions will be removed from the official hearing record."

TransCanada said in a statement that it will review the NEB's decision to determine its impact.
