The National Energy Board has completed the review of the 2017 NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) System Expansion Project and has submitted its final report to the Government of Canada. As part of these engagement efforts, the Government of Canada launched an online questionnaire for Canadians to submit their feedback on the project.
The questionnaire is now closed. Thank you to all who participated!
What is the 2017 NGTL System Expansion Project?
NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of TransCanada PipeLines Limited, is proposing to expand the existing NGTL gas pipeline system in northern Alberta. The expansion includes five new and separate pipeline sections varying between 20 km and 91 km in length, for a total of 230 km, with approximately 90% of the length located parallel to existing linear disturbances (e.g., pipelines or roads). The project also includes two new compressor facilities.
