OTTAWA: Gerald Soroka, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead is pleased to inform constituents that the Government of Canada has approved the NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) 2021 System Expansion Project.
The $2.3 billion NGTL project is of significant importance to Alberta, to Yellowhead riding and for economies across the country. It will add 344 kilometres of new pipeline to the existing NOVA Gas Transmission system from west of Red Deer to near Grande Prairie, Alberta. The project will also create up to 2,920 direct jobs during construction and provide natural gas producers and shippers with greater access to domestic and US markets.
“This $2.3-billion project will contribute approximately $1.2 billion to Alberta’s GDP giving natural gas producers better access to markets for their products” stated MP Soroka.
“This project was approved just two weeks after I rose in the House of Commons to question the government on the delays in approving the NGTL Pipeline,” concluded MP Soroka.
