TC Energy And Pipeline Expansion In Northwest
The Canadian company T-C Energy wants to increase the flow of natural gas through Oregon, Washington and Idaho.
The company has pitched a project that would pump more gas through the Gas Transmission Northwest pipeline every day. The additional gas would be enough to meet the daily energy needs of about half a million average homes.
Erin Saylor with the environmental group Columbia Riverkeeper says the project ignores regional trends toward renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydro.
Saylor: “We’re expecting demand for gas to drop significantly, which means there isn’t going to be a need for all of this gas that they’re planning to push into our region.”
TC Energy says the pipeline expansion will help meet growing demand for natural gas in the region.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is reviewing the project.
