Many Islands Pipe Lines (Canada) Limited (MIPL(C)L) is a federally regulated and wholly owned subsidiary of SaskEnergy Incorporated, a Saskatchewan Crown Corporation. MIP(C)L is proposing to build an approximately 30-kilometre natural gas line from the Nova Gas Transmission Limited (Nova) meter station east of Cherry Grove, AB to the TransGas Limited (TransGas) meter station east of Beacon Hill, SK. Additionally, a new compressor station is proposed to be constructed near the westend of this gas line, within Saskatchewan.
Many Islands Pipe Lines (Canada) Limited recently completed the construction of a natural gas line in southwest Saskatchewan. The purpose of the project was to connect MIPL’s existing gas line to the Foothills Pipeline Ltd. System (TC Energy) in the area to increase natural gas supply to the province.
MIPL made an application to the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) for approval for the proposed facilities.
Many Islands Pipe Lines (Canada) Limited is proposing to abandon a 2.7 kilometre section of the Esther – Smiley 219.1 mm O.D. (NPS 8-inch) natural gas line, which is located in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. MIPL will also sell the remaining gas line to TransGas Limited as it will not cross the Alberta-Saskatchewan border.
