Our Competitive Position

Over $40 Billion in Assets

With more than $40 billion in assets, TransCanada is a leader in the responsible development and reliable operation of North American energy infrastructure including natural gas and crude oil pipelines, power generation and natural gas storage facilities.

North America's Largest Natural Gas Pipeline Network

TransCanada's 60,000 kilometre (37,000 mile) wholly owned natural gas pipeline network delivers approximately 20 per cent of the natural gas consumed in North America each day. Our system taps into virtually every major natural gas supply basin on the continent and provides our customers with unparalleled access to premium markets. Looking forward, our vast pipeline network is well positioned to connect new sources of supply such as shale gas and northern gas to growing North American markets.

North America's Second Largest Natural Gas Storage Operator

With approximately 380 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of storage capacity, we are one of the continent's largest providers of natural gas storage and related services. Collectively, our storage facilities are capable of meeting the needs of nearly four million homes each year.

Canada's Largest Private Sector Power Generator

TransCanada owns, controls or is developing approximately 11,700 megawatts of power generation in Canada and the United States — enough capacity to power nearly 12 million homes. Our diversified power portfolio includes natural gas, nuclear, coal, hydro and wind generation primarily located in Alberta, Ontario, Québec and the northeastern United States.

Premier North American Oil Pipeline Under Construction

We are developing one of North America's largest crude oil delivery systems. Once completed, the Keystone pipeline system will be capable of moving 1.1 million barrels per day (Bbl/d) from Western Canada to North America's largest refining markets in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast. In the future, Keystone could be expanded to 1.5 million Bbl/d in response to additional market demand.

4,000 Talented Employees

Our success is a reflection of our exceptional team of over 4,000 committed employees who bring skill, experience, energy and knowledge to the work they do. They are our competitive advantage.
