Northern Courier Pipeline Project

TransCanada has recently been selected by the Fort Hills Energy Limited Partnership (FHELP) to develop and operate the proposed Northern Courier Pipeline project. The proposed project will be a 90-kilometre pipeline system that will transport bitumen and diluent products between the Fort Hills mine and bitumen extraction facility and Suncor's East Tank Farm, located north of Fort McMurray, Alberta.

The Northern Courier Pipeline project will complement TransCanada’s extensive experience in Northern Alberta. TransCanada currently operates 24,200 kilometres of natural gas pipelines across Alberta and 3,500 kilometres of crude oil pipelines through the operation of the Keystone Pipeline. Keystone has safely transported more than 280 million barrels of crude oil from Alberta to markets in the United States. Northern Courier Pipeline GP Ltd. will be a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransCanada.

The conceptual route is based on a preliminary assessment of geography, terrain, environment and constructability. It is very early in the project planning process, so a specific route has not yet been selected. Before a route can be defined, TransCanada will engage with Aboriginal and local communities near the conceptual route to share information, gather input and incorporate feedback into our decision-making and route-defining process.

The final route will be determined by considering Aboriginal, landowner and stakeholder input, the environment, archaeological and cultural values, land-use compatibility, safety, constructability and economics.
