We hope to be able to announce who the contractors for the Project are in the coming months once a final investment decision is made by the Kinder Morgan Board of Directors.
The expansion will create a twinned pipeline increasing the nominal capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day.
The existing Trans Mountain Pipeline transports crude oil, semi-refined and refined products, while the expanded pipeline will primarily transport crude oil for export. You can learn more about our product mix here.
Gasoline pricing is a complex issue and many factors affect pump prices in Canada. The Canadian Fuels Association has information on the factors that go into pricing on their website here.
In order to accommodate the increased capacity of the system approximately 980 km of pipeline will be added and another 193 km reactivated. The new pipeline will consist of 859 km of 36-inch pipe and 121 km of 42-inch pipe and the reactivated pipeline lengths are 24-inch segments from Hinton to Hargreaves and from Darfield to Black Pines. You can learn more here.
Kinder Morgan Canada is the owner and operator of the Trans Mountain pipeline and this Project. We will announce who the contractors for the Project are in the coming months once a final investment decision is made by the Kinder Morgan Board of Directors.

1. When the Trans Mountain expansion project is complete how many additional tankers will be using the facility in Burnaby each year?
With the expansion of the Trans Mountain Pipeline and associated dock facilities, tanker traffic calling at our Westridge Marine Terminal will increase from approximately 5 per month to 1 per day. Forecasting shows this will account for about 6.6 percent of all large commercial vessels trading in the region.
2. Who owns these tankers and where are they ...
