TC Energy proposed the $900-million Heartland Pipeline and TC Terminal projects in 2013.[4] 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.[4]

In a 2015 annual report filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, TC Energy 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.”[5]

In 2021, TC Energy took an impairment charge on the project as it was related to the cancelled Keystone XL project.[2]
