Trans Mountain is expanding its current 1,150 km pipeline between Strathcona County, Alberta and Burnaby, BC. The expansion would create a twinned pipeline that would increase the nominal capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day. Application filed with National Energy Board in December 2013 and was approved on May 19, 2016.
The federal government has purchased the existing pipeline, along with the expansion project in May 2018 for $4.5B. The deal is expected to close mid to late September 2018. The project's cost was revised on August 7th, 2018 to $9.3B.
