Project Information

NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL), a wholly owned subsidiary of TransCanada PipeLines Limited, has filed a project description indicating its intent to construct and operate four new segments of pipeline and related facilities. If approved, these segments would add another 166 kilometres to what is commonly known as the Alberta System.

The new sections would be built alongside or contiguous to existing rights-of-way over a distance of approximately 115 kilometres while the remaining portion, about 51 kilometres in length, would require new rights-of-way. The projected in-service date would be April 2014.
