NGTL System FT- D Transfers

Updated on July 4, 2017

On June 13, 2017, the TTFP approved a change to the FT-D Group 2 Transfer process on a trial basis.  As of July 4, 2017 transfers from one FT-D Group 2 Delivery Point to other FT-D Group 2 Delivery Points may be submitted on a daily basis for evaluation by NGTL.  With the removal of a set date and time for submitting FT-D2 transfer requests, the evaluation of these requests will now be completed on a first come, best efforts basis.  The revised process will continue on a trial basis through the earlier of March 31, 2018, or as addressed in the Rate Design and Services Task Force.  NGTL has the discretion to suspend the revised process if any unintended or negative consequences to the system are observed.

Group 1 and Group 3 Transfer process remain unchanged. 

Opportunity to Transfer a Group 1 Delivery Contract

The opportunity to Transfer an FT-D contract from one FT-D Group 1 Delivery Point to other FT-D Group 1 or 2 Points may be requested only on the fourth last business day of the month, on or before 11:00 a.m. Mountain Time (MT) for service starting the following month. All parties wishing to request a contract transfer can do so by completing the FT-D Transfer Request Form. A completed and executed FT-D Transfer Request form must be faxed to NGTL FT-D Transfer Request at 1.403.920.2341 or an email with the executed form sent to ab_ft_openseason@transcanada.com prior to the deadline shown above, in order for a contract be considered for Transfer.
