Grand Rapids Pipeline System


Jointly owned by TransCanada and PetroChina Canada Ltd., formerly Brion Energy Corporation, the 460 km (287 mile) Grand Rapids Pipeline System will play a key role in connecting producing areas of northwest Fort McMurray, Alta., to terminals in the Edmonton/Heartland region. The pipeline commenced crude oil transportation services in late August 2017.

In addition, work continues on the Grand Rapids and Keyera joint venture, which includes a 20-inch diameter diluent pipeline between Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan. The pipeline will provide enhanced diluent supply into the Heartland region.
