PLCAC Meets with Energy East Stakeholders



On August 1, 2013 TransCanada announced that it planned to proceed with its Energy East Pipeline project. The project is expected to cost approximately $12 billion and will carry 1.1-million barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta and Saskatchewan to refineries in Eastern Canada. The Energy East Pipeline Project involves three major components: pipeline conversion (about 3,000 kms or 1,864 miles), the construction of new pipeline (about 1,400 kms or 870 miles) and the construction of new pipeline facilities.

In early September, PLCAC and other stakeholders met with TransCanada CEO Russ Girling and New Brunswick Premier David Alward to review the benefits of the project and the potential work and job opportunities it represents.
