North Montney Mainline

Natural Gas Icon

Overview 

We’re pleased to announce that the North Montney Mainline (NMML) Project is now in-service.

Located in British Columbia’s Peace River Regional District, the NMML will provide the critical natural gas transmission infrastructure required to connect natural gas producers and downstream markets throughout Canada and the United States, generating jobs and tax revenues for hospitals, schools and more in some of B.C.’s more remote communities.

The Project consisted of a 206 kilometre (km), 42-inch pipeline, two compressor stations, and 11 meter stations. Construction of the Project began in mid-2018 and the facilities were phased into service starting in early 2020. The first phase to be completed in January 2020 included the 182 km Aitken Creek pipeline section, the Groundbirch compressor station and nine meter stations. The remaining 24 km Kahta pipeline section, the Saturn compressor station and one meter station as part of phase 2 were completed in April/May 2020. The proposed Kobes Meter Station is a component of the Project and is slated for future construction. More information on construction timelines will be communicated as it becomes available.

Engagement with local communities, landowners, and Indigenous communities began in 2011. Thank you to the all those communities, our stakeholders and the hundreds of workers for their patience, hard work and dedication to this Project. We are grateful to everyone who played a role in its success!

Regulatory documents

The North Montney Mainline is part of the NGTL System, which is governed according to regulations outlined by the Canada Energy Regulator (CER), which replaced the National Energy Board (NEB) in August 2019.

Regulatory information

In March 2017, TC Energy filed a variance application, with the NEB,  The Project was originally approved in 2013, subject to conditions making construction contingent on a positive final investment decision on the then proposed PNW LNG liquefication project. NGTL sought approval to remove those conditions through its variance application which included restructured commercial Project arrangements and the associated facilities to accommodate a delay, or as occurred in July 2017, a cancellation of the PNW LNG Project.

In May 2018, the NEB recommended approval of the variance application.

In July 2018, NGTL received Amending Order AO-003-GC-125 (the Order) from the NEB and approved by Governor in Council, approving the variance application and construction of the Project.

In order to obtain the certificate, TC Energy made several project commitments that will now be tracked on a monthly basis. We are required to post and update the status of the project commitments on a monthly basis until the start of operation, and on a quarterly basis until the end of the fifth year of operation. The North Montney commitments tracking table is provided below.
