Since 1953, the Trans Mountain Pipeline system has been safely and efficiently providing the only West Coast pipeline access for Canadian oil products. The pipeline has been adapted over the years to meet evolving needs. The planned $7.4-billion expansion will, when built, create a twinned pipeline that would increase the capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000.
It will open up lucrative new markets for Canadian energy and generate billions for the economy. And it comes with 15,000 construction jobs.
