Alliance Pipeline is offering capacity on its system for natural gas transportation services effective December 1, 2015. Starting August 15, 2013, through a Precedent Agreement process, customers can express interest in December 1, 2015 capacity on the Alliance system. Capacity will be allocated on a first come, first served basis as Precedent Agreements are executed.
“Since last October, when we launched our proposed New Services Framework, Alliance has held over 60 customer consultations. The consultation process helped us further refine our service offerings to better meet shippers’ needs in a dynamic marketplace”, said Daniel Sutherland, vice-president, Business Development. “The Precedent Agreement process we’ve put in place responds to the interest expressed in acquiring capacity on our pipeline, post-2015”.
Most of Alliance’s original 15-year term transportation agreements end November 30, 2015, and Alliance’s new service offerings will be the basis for re-contracting the pipeline. Alliance’s New Services Framework includes:
- predictable and competitive fixed tolls;
- a suite of pipeline services to appeal to a diverse range of customers;
- a new Canadian trading pool; and,
- low-cost rich gas transportation to premium downstream markets that recognizes the commercial risks in today’s natural gas marketplace.
As part of this new framework, Alliance will also be applying for regulatory approval to change its Hydrocarbon Dewpoint (HCDP) tariff specification effective December 1, 2015. The HCDP change will facilitate an increase in the NGL component of the gas Alliance transports.
