TC Pipelines reports 1Q17 results

TC PipeLines, LP has reported 1Q17 net income attributable to controlling interests of US$75 million and distributable cash flow of US$92 million.

“The partnership's assets continued their solid performance during 1Q17," said Brandon Anderson, President of TC PipeLines, LP, Inc. "Our pipelines reliably served their markets with natural gas to heat homes and provide power during the recent winter period. This was reflected in our stable cash flow and earnings, providing ongoing value to our unitholders.”

TC PipeLines, LP has reached agreements to purchase a 49.35% interest in the Iroquois Gas Transmission System, LP from TransCanada, together with TransCanada's remaining 11.8% interest in Portland Natural Gas Transmission System (PNGTS) for a total price of US$765 million.

These transactions underscore TC Pipeline’s ability to assist TransCanada in financing its large capital programme on a cost competitive basis. Based on the anticipated increased cash flow following this acquisition, the company expects to recommend a 6% increase in distribution in July. This and future dropdowns will underpin our growth in the years to come and provide our unitholders with a continued source of long term, stable cash flow.
