TC Energy, formerly TransCanada Pipelines, presented to both Town and M.D. of Pincher Creek councils on December 9 and 10, demonstrating interest in putting a portion of the proposed NGTL West Path Delivery through the municipal district.
The proposed pipeline build is for a total of 38-km of 48-inch diameter pipeline spanning through three sections from Turner Valley, through Longview, to an area near Lundbreck.
The purpose of the proposed project is to supply southern Alberta and B.C. with natural gas, as well as other connected markets further downstream.
The Lundbreck section is proposed to be 7-km of the 38-km total, and would be located approximately 30-km to the northwest of the Town of Pincher Creek.
Preston Seier, Public Affairs Advisor at TC Energy who presented to both councils, said the project would be an expansion to an existing pipeline.
“We’re just adding to our current that we have, and we will be looping, if you will, through the area,” said Seier.
