NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL), will expand its NGTL System with the Saddle West project, increasing total natural gas transportation capacity on the system’s northwest portion by about 355 million cubic feet per day.
NGTL is a TransCanada Corp. subsidiary. The project will likely be in service in 2019, according to a Dec. 7 TransCanada press release.
Karl Johannson, executive vice president and president of natural gas pipelines, said that the Saddle West project will meet the increased transportation needs of customers in the Montney, Duvernay and Deep Basin areas, reaching intra- and ex-basin markets.
The Saddle West project will include 29 kilometers of 36-inch pipeline looping of existing mainlines, the addition of five compressor units at existing station sites and new metering facilities.
An application to construct and operate the project will be filed with the National Energy Board in the third quarter of 2017. Subject to regulatory approvals, construction is expected to start in 2018.
