Heartland Oil Pipeline
|This article is part of the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
Heartland Oil Pipeline was a proposed oil pipeline in Alberta, Canada. TransCanada has shelved the project due to current market conditions. There have been no development updates in four years, as of June 2019, and the pipeline is presumed to be cancelled.
The proposed pipeline would originate in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, and terminate in Hardisty, Alberta.
- Operator: TransCanada
- Proposed capacity: 900,000 barrels per day
- Length: 125 miles (200 kilometers)
- Status: cancelled
TransCanada proposed the $900-million Heartland Pipeline and TC Terminal projects in 2013. The pipeline would transport up to 900,000 barrels of crude oil a day, with the terminal located in the Heartland industrial area north of Edmonton capable of storing 1.9 million barrels of crude oil.
In a 2015 annual report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, TransCanada announced that the Heartland Pipeline and TC Terminal would be delayed indefinitely, and that “the in-service date for the projects will be determined and aligned with industry conditions and customer’s requirements.”
