NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. – North Montney Project

Project Information

NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) has submitted an application to the National Energy Board (NEB or the Board) indicating its intent to construct and operate new pipeline facilities in north east British Columbia.

The proposed project includes the construction and operation of 305km of pipeline in the Peace River Regional District, along with associated metering facilities, valve sites and possible compression facilities. The proposed large diameter (up to 42 in) natural gas pipeline, referred to as the North Montney Mainline, will consist of two sections, Aitken Creek and Kahta. It will connect with the existing Groundbirch Mainline (Saturn Section), located about 35 km southwest of Fort St. John and will continue about 187 km northwest of Fort St. John.

If approved, the proposed pipeline would transport natural gas from the North Montney area to the NOVA Inventory Transfer market hub and through the NGTL system and interconnected pipelines to markets in Alberta and North America.
