Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. Key Developments

Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. Announces $2.7 Billion of New System Expansions

TransCanada Corporation announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL), will contract approximately 4.0 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of firm new contracts that will lead to a system expansion through to 2017 of up to $2.7 billion. TransCanada has received requests from multiple parties for significant volumes of new firm services on the NGTL System. The NGTL System currently transports more than three-quarters of total WCSB production to markets within the basin and to downstream Canadian and U.S. export markets. This demand for services is expected to result in a total of approximately 4.0 Bcf/d of incremental firm service contracts. Approximately 3.1 Bcf/d of this volume relates to firm receipt service and about 0.9 Bcf/d relates to firm delivery service. The estimated capital cost for the 2016/2017 expansion program is approximately $2.7 billion. The investment includes multiple projects that total 540 kilometres (336 miles) of 20 to 48-inch diameter pipeline, seven compressors, 40 meter stations and other associated facilities. Applications to construct and operate the various components of the 2016/2017 expansion program will be filed with the National Energy Board between fourth quarter 2014 through third quarter 2015. Subject to regulatory approvals, construction should start in 2016 with all facilities expected to be in service by second quarter of 2017.

Transcanada Proceeds with $1.9 Billion Merrick Mainline Pipeline Project

Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. has signed agreements with Chevron Canada Limited (CVX) and an Apache Canada Ltd. wholly-owned and controlled partnership (APA) for approximately 1.9 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of firm natural gas transportation services to underpin the development of a major extension of TransCanada's NGTL System. The proposed Merrick Mainline Pipeline Project will be a significant new link in British Columbia's emerging liquefied natural gas (LNG) export market. The pipeline will transport natural gas sourced through the NGTL System to the inlet of CVX/APA's proposed Pacific Trail Pipeline (PTP) that will terminate at the Kitimat LNG Terminal at Bish Cove near Kitimat, B.C. The proposed project will be an extension from the existing Groundbirch Mainline section of the NGTL System beginning near Dawson Creek, B.C. to its end point near the community of Summit Lake, B.C. The $1.9 billion project will consist of approximately 260 kilometres (161 miles) of 48-inch diameter pipe.
