- Regulatory Filing
At TransCanada, we work to minimize our environmental footprint as we strive to meet the energy needs of North Americans. Our ongoing goal is to cause as little disturbance to the land as possible.
One of the reasons that we are considering Energy East is that almost 70 per cent of the pipeline is already in the ground. Of the remaining 30 per cent, more than half will run alongside existing industrial rights-of-way and infrastructure. All of this will reduce the project’s environmental impact from the outset.
Some Facts about Energy East and the Environment
TransCanada announced on November 5, 2015 that it would amend the Energy East application currently before the National Energy Board to remove a port in Quebec from the scope of the project. The application will now focus on connections to three refineries in Quebec and New Brunswick, and to marine terminal in New Brunswick.
