Towerbirch Expansion Project

NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL), a wholly owned subsidiary of TransCanada PipeLines Limited (TransCanada) is proposing to construct, own and operate the Towerbirch Expansion Project, an expansion to the NGTL System to receive sweet natural gas from gas producers in northeastern B.C.

Since the last project update in September 2015, there have been changes to the Towerbirch Expansion Project scope to accommodate new customers who would like to transport natural gas on the NGTL System. The project will now include the Groundbirch East Receipt Meter Station Expansion (SW-02-79-19 W6M) and the Dawson Creek East Receipt Meter Station (SE-04-79-15 W6M).

The pipeline component has two sections for a total length of 88 km. The first section is 36-inches (914 mm) in diameter and begins in Saddle Hills County, continues west for approximately 56 km and ties into the existing Tremblay Complex. The second section is 30-inches (762mm) in diameter and begins at the Tremblay Complex, continues north for approximately 32km and terminates at the proposed Tower Lake Receipt Meter Station site (SW-7-81-17 W6M). Other facilities include valve sites, the Tower Lake Receipt Meter Station, and the Dawson Creek North and No. 2 Receipt Meter Stations (co-located at SE-27-79-17 W6M).

On September 2, 2015, NGTL filed an application with the National Energy Board (NEB) for its proposed Towerbirch Expansion Project. The NEB will schedule a hearing to discuss the proposed project.
