TransCanada subsidiary NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) will move forward with its the Saddle West Project. An expansion of its NGTL System, the Saddle West Project, will increase total natural gas transportation capacity on the northwest portion of the system by approximately 355 MMcf/d (10 x 106 m3/d). The project is expected to be in service in 2019.
The Saddle West Expansion Project will include 18 miles (29 km) of 36-in. (914-mm) pipeline looping of existing mainlines, the addition of five compressor units at existing station sites, and new metering facilities. An application to construct and operate the project will be filed with the National Energy Board in the third quarter of 2017. Construction is expected to start in 2018.
TransCanada operates a network of natural gas pipelines that extends more than 56,100 miles (90,300 km), tapping into virtually all major gas supply basins in North America.
