Four things you might not know about TC Energy in the U.S.

Posted by TC Energy

TC Energy may be headquartered in Canada, but the U.S. team is integral to our company’s operations across North America, especially as we expand our reach in the U.S.

Here are four quick facts about TC Energy’s ever-growing U.S. footprint.

More than 40% of TC Energy’s workforce lives in the U.S.

Our workforce of about 8,700 people across North America works hard to help transport the energy needed to power communities and businesses in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. Of this workforce, more than 3,500 live in the U.S.

TC Energy Center is an iconic element of Houston’s skyline

The building that houses TC Energy’s U.S. headquarters at 700 Louisiana Street was renamed the TC Energy Center in October 2019. TC Energy leases more than 300,000 square feet of the 56-story building, making us its largest tenant. The landmark building has been around since 1983 and was designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson. TC Energy Center has a famously striking appearance due to its distinct postmodern style and its red Swedish granite exterior.

Our natural gas meets a quarter of U.S. natural gas demand

We serve about 25 percent of the U.S. demand for natural gas. Our gas reaches many different places, such as residential homes, commercial buildings and industrial facilities. It also serves many different purposes, including power generation, heating and cooling. To safely meet these varied energy needs every day for many Americans, we operate more than 32,700 miles of pipeline spanning across 40 U.S. states—that’s more than enough pipe to circle the Earth—as well as 535 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of regulated storage.

Our U.S. Natural Gas system on Jan. 30, 2019 moved a company-record 33.1 Bcf of gas, as Americans sought to stay warm during the middle of winter.

The Keystone Pipeline System marks its 10th anniversary in 2020

While Keystone XL is a well-known project, the 1,210-mile pipeline under construction is actually part of the existing Keystone Pipeline System that was commissioned in 2010. The current Keystone Pipeline System stretches 2,687 miles and safely delivers hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil daily to the U.S. Gulf Coast to meet energy demand.

Not only will Keystone XL be capable of safely delivering 830,000 barrels per day of oil, it will create 10,400 construction jobs in the U.S. and additionally support 42,000 direct and indirect U.S. jobs. Keystone XL is an $8-billion investment to strengthen continental energy security and provide substantial economic benefits to communities along the way.
