As reported by the Financial Post, Canada based energy company Enbridge announced friday their plans for a $3.6 billion expansion of the southern segment of its British Columbia gas pipeline system after strong demand from customers.

The company - located in Calgary Alberta - posted higher third-quarter earnings late this week.

Enbridge Chief Executive Officer Al Monaco said that supply growth coupled with future demand from planned liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects was underpinning the expansions, with Gas production in Western Canada this year nearing record levels of 18 billion cubic feet a day.

A story from TNC News suggests these pipeline projects are creating 1000's of related pipeline jobs.

"Given the outlook for Western Canada supply, we are seeing strong customer interest for more egress for LNG exports and downstream access," Monaco said in an earnings call.

The T-South will add 300 million cubic feet per day (cfpd) of capacity, and will serve customers in the Pacific Northwest and southern B.C.

It will further serve the Woodfibre LNG project that Enbridge bought a $1.5 billion stake in earlier this year.

The company expects to file a regulatory application for the T-South expansion in 2024 and is targeting 2028 to start operations.
