Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion

February 2014, Vol. 241 No. 2

Trans Mountain Pipeline ULC, operated by Kinder Morgan Canada and owned by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P., has filed an application with Canada’s National Energy Board for authorization to build and operate the necessary facilities for the company’s proposed Trans Mountain expansion project.

The planned $5.4 billion project calls for: twinning the existing pipeline, where possible, within the existing right-of-way between Strathcona County, Alberta to Burnaby, British Columbia; adding pump stations along the route; increasing the number of storage tanks at existing facilities; increasing capacity from 300,000 to 890,000 bpd; and expanding Westridge Marine Terminal.If approvals are received, the expansion is expected to be operational in late 2017.
