Enbridge Inc., Calgary, launched an open season to gauge shipper support for expanded natural gas capacity on the T-North segment of its 3.6 bcfd BC Pipeline system in British Columbia. T-North runs from the Fort Nelson area and transports natural gas south to the T-South segment of the company's 2,953-km BC pipeline system and east to interconnecting pipelines at the British Columbia-Alberta border.
The expansion could provide an additional 500 MMcfd capacity at a capital cost of up to $1.9 billion (Can.) to serve growing regional demand for natural gas, West Coast LNG exports, and downstream demand, the company said in a press statement Nov. 4.
The open season began Nov. 4 and is expected to end on Jan. 10, 2023.
