TC Energy Corporation has released its 3Q22 results, reporting continued strong performance. “Our portfolio remains resilient despite the economic headwinds facing the broader market,” said TC Energy's President and CEO, François Poirier. “Demand for our services across our North American portfolio remains high and we continue to see strong utilisation, availability, and overall asset performance. Comparable EBITDA was 10% higher and segmented earnings 16% higher relative to 3Q21. As a result, we have increased our 2022 comparable EBITDA outlook which is now expected to be approximately 4% higher than 2021.”
3Q22 results were underpinned by solid utilisation, safe operations and availability across their assets during peak demand. The continued need for energy security has placed renewed focus on the long-term role TC Energy believe their infrastructure will play in responsibly fulfilling North America's growing energy demand:

- US natural gas pipelines flows averaged 25.8 billion ft3/d, up 6% compared to 3Q21.
- Bruce Power provided emission-less power with approximately 95% availability during 3Q22.
