Westcoast is conducting an open season for additional firm service on its Transportation North (Zone 3) facilities between any receipt point and any delivery point within the Zone. The new service would be made available through a multiple phased expansion of Zone 3 facilities to provide up to 600 MMcf/d of new capacity on the Fort Nelson Mainline and up to 200 MMcf/d of new capacity on the Fort St. John Mainline, each to be determined at Westcoast's discretion. The pipeline said it is responding to strong supply growth in both the Fort Nelson and Fort St. John resource areas, particularly in the Horn River Basin and Montney shale plays. Requests for services are due by 3 p.m. MST Oct. 29; see the T North Expansion documents on the bulletin board for further details.
