The Project would consist of approximately 279 km of new gas pipeline and related components and would be constructed in four sections, beginning near Markham, Ontario and finishing near the community of Brouseville, Ontario. About 203 km of the proposed 279 km pipeline would be installed adjacent to existing pipeline, railway and public highway rights-of-way.
The application for the Project has been filed to enable TransCanada to continue to meet its commercial obligations following the proposed transfer of certain Canadian Mainline facilities to Energy East Pipeline Ltd. for the conversion of those facilities to crude oil from natural gas service (Asset Transfer). The Asset Transfer makes up a portion of the Energy East application.
TransCanada is not, in this application, seeking approvals pursuant to Part IV of the NEB Act, relating to recovery of the cost of the Project through tolls.
