Grand Rapids Pipeline System


Since August 2017, the Grand Rapids Pipeline System Phase I has delivered crude oil on behalf of our customers. Jointly owned by TC Energy and PetroChina Canada Ltd., formerly Brion Energy Corporation, the 460 km (287 mile) Grand Rapids Pipeline System plays a key role in connecting producing areas northwest of Fort McMurray, Alberta, to terminals in the Edmonton/Heartland region.

In November 2018, we placed the South Grand Rapids Joint Venture into service. Through this joint venture between Grand Rapids and Keyera, the asset includes a diluent pump station and a 20-inch diameter diluent pipeline between Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.

Whether you’re digging a foundation on a commercial jobsite, a swimming pool in your backyard or planting a tree, always know what’s below first. Before putting a shovel in the ground, contact your local One-Call Centre to have all underground utilities located and marked free of charge.

Consequences of unsafe digging include:

  • Risk of serious injuries and death
  • Fines and repair costs to fix underground utility lines
  • Interrupted services such as electricity, gas and water
