Staff Writer |
TransCanada Corporation has filed a variance application with the National Energy Board to proceed with construction of the North Montney Mainline (NMML) Project in northeast British Columbia.

TransCanada has previously been granted the required primary federal and provincial approvals to construct NMML, subject to conditions that included the requirement for a positive final investment decision on the proposed Pacific Northwest LNG (PNW) Project.

The requested variance would allow TransCanada to move forward with construction of the majority of the NMML Project, at an estimated capital cost of approximately $1.4 billion, prior to a final investment decision on the PNW LNG project.

In support of the variance for the NMML Project, TransCanada has secured new 20-year commercial contracts with 11 shippers for approximately 1.5 Bcf/d of firm service.
