We are more than a pipeline company. For more than 60 years, TransCanada has been a leader in the safe and reliable operation of North American energy infrastructure, including a vast array of natural gas and oil pipelines, along with natural gas storage facilities and nuclear, wind, hydro and solar power-generation facilities.
TransCanada owns or has interests in $48 billion of long-life assets — primarily pipelines and power-generation facilities — in Canada, the United States and Mexico and is expected to see $38 billion in new projects completed by the end of this decade
To date, TransCanada has invested over $5 billion in renewable energy sources. We own or have interests in 21 power facilities with the capacity to generate 11,800 megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to power nearly 12 million homes. Approximately one-third of the power we generate comes from alternative and renewable sources, including 13 hydro power facilities in the U.S. Northeast, the largest wind farms in Maine and Quebec, solar generation in Ontario and our significant interest in Ontario’s Bruce Power, the world’s largest nuclear facility.
We operate one of the largest natural gas transmission networks in North America – 68,500 kilometres (km) (42,500 miles) – tapping into virtually every major gas supply basin and transporting approximately 20 per cent of the continent’s daily natural gas supply. We are North America’s third largest provider of natural gas storage and related services with more than 400 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of storage capacity.
The 4,247-km (2,639-mile) Keystone Pipeline System transports almost one-quarter of Canada’s crude oil exports to the United States. It has safely delivered more than 550 million barrels of Canadian crude oil to markets in the U.S. since it began operation in July 2010. Keystone now includes the Gulf Coast extension, which began transporting crude oil from Cushing, Okla., to refineries on the Gulf Coast of Texas in January 2014, providing these refineries with a more stable and less expensive source of oil from U.S. and Canadian producers.
