TransCanada makes initial filing for $12B Energy East oil pipeline

TransCanada (TRP) yesterday took a key step toward obtaining regulatory approval for its proposed $12B Energy East oil pipeline, as it filed a preliminary project description with the National Energy Board.

The pipeline would connect 1.1M bbl/day of crude from western Canada to refineries and export terminals in Quebec and New Brunswick; the project involves converting part of TRP's existing natural gas mainline to oil service between Alberta and Quebec and then laying new pipe the rest of the way.

TRP expects to file a full regulatory application for Energy East this summer, with startup expected in 2018.

    I would like to find out who will be the suppliers to TRP for the Pipeline i.e. pump makers, pipe makers and control systems. Who has historically supplied all that equipment and are they the leading bidders for the project or are there vested interests that make it possible for entrenched players to only participate.

    TRP generally uses a EPC contractor on this size of a project. Best to go to the web site and ask there. They are quite open to project questions.

    It's about time! Please continue to push for a made in Canada solution to poor southern leadership. Just bought more TRP today!
