Northern Courier Pipeline Project
TransCanada was selected by Fort Hills Energy LP to design, build, own and operate the Northern Courier Pipeline Project, which is fully contracted under a long-term agreement. The approximately 90-kilometre (56-mile) pipeline system will transport bitumen and diluent products between the Fort Hills Mine and Bitumen Extraction Facility (Fort Hills) to Suncor’s East Tank Farm (ETF), located north of Fort McMurray, 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 600 million barrels of crude oil from Alberta to markets in the United States. Northern Courier Pipeline GP Ltd. is a wholly-owned subsidiary of TransCanada.
