TC Energy Corporation (TC Energy) has announced the West Path Delivery Programme, a combined CAN$1.2 billion expansion of its NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) and Foothills Systems, which will connect with the CAN$335 million GTN XPress Project recently announced by TC PipeLines LP, to deliver the volumes to downstream markets.
“The West Path Delivery Programme, along with the GTN XPress Project, further enhances connections of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) to high-value downstream markets,” said Russ Girling, President and Chief Executive Officer. “This CAN$1.2 billion programme brings our sanctioned expansions of NGTL and Foothills infrastructure to CAN$10 billion, demonstrating our strong commitment to the long-term viability of the WCSB.”
The West Path Delivery Programme is underpinned by approximately 258 million ft3/d of new firm service contracts with terms that exceed 30 years, commencing between 4Q22 and 4Q23. The CAN$1.2 billion to be invested includes approximately 119 km (74 miles) of pipeline and associated facilities.
Applications for approvals to construct and operate the facilities are expected to be filed in 2020 and, pending receipt of regulatory approvals, construction is expected to commence as early as 4Q21.
