Iconic Houston building renamed: TC Energy Center

Posted by TC Energy

A significant milestone for our U.S. headquarters

Earlier this year, we changed our company’s name from TransCanada to TC Energy to better reflect the scope of our operations across North America and to recognize the very important role our U.S. based team and assets play in contributing to TC Energy’s success.

On Tuesday, Oct. 15, we announced that the iconic building at 700 Louisiana Street in Houston, previously the Bank of America Center, has been renamed the TC Energy Center!

“We are over 8,000 strong, with over 3,600 U.S. employees and in-house contractors working across assets in 40 states,” said Stan Chapman’s, Executive Vice-President and President, U.S. Natural Gas Pipelines. “Over 1,000 members of our U.S. workforce are based in Houston and the majority are located in our U.S. headquarters – the TC Energy Center.”


Our growing presence in the U.S.

The TC Energy Center is a testament to the growth of our people and our operations – in Houston and across the country.

TC Energy owns and operates one of the largest portfolios of natural gas pipelines and storage, transporting 25 per cent of U.S. gas demand across 48,890 kilometres (31,000 miles) and operating roughly 535 bcf, or 10 per cent, of U.S. natural gas storage.

Our liquids portfolio also spans 3,000 kilometres (1,900 miles) in the U.S. and connects growing continental oil supplies to key refinery markets in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast, where it is converted into gasoline and other petroleum products we use every day. 

“As our business grows, so do our resource needs. We are always looking for bright, talented individuals to join our diverse and inclusive team,” added Stan. “We’re part of a greater story – our work and the energy we deliver powers lives in North America and fuels industry. I’m proud to be part of that story.”

Having TC Energy’s name on such an iconic landmark building is symbolic of our commitment to growing our presence in the U.S. energy industry, employing great talent, contributing to our communities and delivering upon our purpose every day we come to work. I am personally so proud to see how we’ve evolved in this space and the opportunities ahead for us to continue to do so.”
