NGTL System FT- D Transfers

Updated on March 20 , 2017

TransCanada received Alberta Energy Utility Board approval on October 19, 2006 (EUB Order #U2006-268) to allow existing FT-D contract holders to transfer all or a portion of their existing Delivery Contracted Demand to another Delivery Point if capacity is available at that Point. TransCanada applied to the National Energy Board (NEB) in June of 2008 to change its NGTL System from provincial jurisdiction to federal jurisdiction. As a result, all AUC orders may be accessed through the Alberta Energy Utility Board Website.

Pursuant to Resolution T2015-01: NGTL Delivery Service Attributes - Sub-Issue 2.1 changes to the transfer process for Group 2 Delivery Points will be effective on a trial basis for the period of July 1, 2015 through December 31, 2017.

FT-D Transfers and Allocation Procedure

As identified in Section 7.0 Transfer of Service of the FT-D, contract holders are allowed to request a transfer of all or a portion of their contract from one Delivery Point, to another.
