TC Energy to Begin Construction on NGTL Expansion Project

By Jason Cockerham, Digital Editor

(P&GJ) — TC Energy has received approval from the Canadian government for its 2021 NOVA Gas Transmissions Ltd. (NGTL) System Expansion Project. 

The approval was expected to be granted earlier this year but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The NGTL is a 15,000-mile (25,000 kilometer) natural gas transmission system that ships gas from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) across Alberta and British Columbia (B.C.) to connection points on other pipeline systems.

TC Energy plans to add an additional 214 miles (344 kilometers) of 48-inch pipeline to the NGTL system along with three compressor stations along the existing pipeline.

The majority of the new pipe would run alongside the existing infrastructure.

TC Energy expects the project to cost about $2.3 billion with construction on the compressor stations to begin in December and pipeline construction to begin in January 2021.

The NGTL expansion project is part of a larger $9.9 billion infrastructure program currently underway which will add 3.5 Bcf/d of incremental delivery capacity to the system between 2020 and 2024.
