TransCanada progresses with NGTL expansion

TransCanada will progress with the proposed CA$140 million expansion of its NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd (NGTL) System.

The decision follows the successful completion of an expansion capacity open season for incremental firm export delivery service at the Empress/McNeill Export Delivery Point in March.

“The successful open season for incremental export capacity demonstrates the significant continued interest of parties in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin to secure access to high value downstream markets,” said TransCanada Canadian Gas Pipelines Senior Vice-President and General Manager Tracy Robinson.

“TransCanada remains firmly committed to providing our customers timely and reliable access to these markets through appropriate facility expansions and competitive service offerings.”

Shippers have secured binding agreements for 7.9 million m3 per day of incremental firm delivery service commencing in November 2021.

The average term of the contracts awarded for the expansion capacity is 22 years.

The NGTL has also secured incremental intra-basin firm delivery service contracts with other shippers for an aggregate volume of 2.1 million m3 per day to contribute to the need for the new facilities.
