The Gas Transmission North West XPress Project (GTNXP) will upgrade three existing compressor stations on the Gas Transmission Northwest (GTN) system - transporting natural gas since 1962 - to meet increasing demand from residential, commercial and industrial customers in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States while also providing supply reliability to the Pacific Northwest and West Coast regions as natural gas supplies coming from the Rockies region of the United States decline.
The Project will ensure ongoing reliability to communities in the Western U.S. in a safe and responsible manner, supplementing renewable energy as required. GTNXP's scope consists of the following facilities and associated upgrades with all work to be conducted within the compressor stations' property lines:
