TransCanada postpones Energy East Pipeline filing until 2014

  • TransCanada (TRP) will delay filing an application for its proposed Energy East Pipeline with Canada's National Energy Board until next year, saying there's too much work to do to be able to meet its initial goal of filing the application for the $12B project before the end of this year.
  • TRP says it has heard a variety of concerns with the route as it holds open house public meetings across the country.
  • The 4,500-km pipeline would ship up to 1.1M bbl/day of oil from Alberta to refineries and export terminals in Quebec and New Brunswick.

    B.C. Premier Christy Clark says her province is moving closer to an agreement with Alberta that would lay a path for oil sands bitumen to reach B.C. ports.

     

    A series of high-level meetings are under way to discuss how the two provinces can open up the path to B.C.’s coasts, and then Asian markets. An agreement is not imminent, but officials for both the provinces are working on a framework to address B.C.’s five conditions.
