Spectra Energy is holding an open season for additional transportation service on its Transportation North (T-North) facilities in Northern British Columbia (BC).

Available are up to 600 MMcf/d of additional capacity on the Fort Nelson Mainline and up to 200 MMcf/d of additional capacity on the Fort St. John Mainline to provide firm transportation service between any T-North receipt point and any T-North delivery point. The new facilities are expected to be put into service in stages over the latter half of 2012 and the first half of 2013.

"We are offering new pipeline capacity to meet the growing demand for transportation service from the prolific producing regions in northeast British Columbia," said Rob Whitwham, vice president, pipeline, Spectra Energy Transmission West. "Securing long-term firm transportation contracts will enable us to expand our existing assets in the region, thereby enhancing market optionality for natural gas buyers and suppliers in BC."

The open season ends at 3 p.m. MDT Oct. 29. For information contact Mel Thorp, director of marketing and business development, at (403) 699-1578 or at melthorp@spectraenergy.com.
