The Alliance in 2023 admitted four affiliate members. They are (in alphabetical order):
Enbridge Inc. is a Canadian-based leader in energy pipelines and delivery in North America.
It moves about 30% of the crude oil produced in North America, and nearly 20% of the natural gas consumed in the U.S. And it operates North America’s third-largest natural gas utility (by consumer count.)
Enbridge was an early leader in renewable energy, and has a growing offshore wind portfolio. It is advancing low-carbon plans, including hydrogen, renewable natural gas, and carbon capture and storage. It aims to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.
In B.C., Enbridge is a 30% partner in Woodfibre LNG, and supports FortisBC’s Eagle gas pipeline to feed Woodfibre’s LNG export facility.
Fortis BC is a Canadian-owned and BC-based company that delivers renewable energy, natural gas and electricity to 1.2 million customers in 135 BC communities, and 58 First Nations communities.
It owns approximately 50,000 km of natural gas lines and 7,260 km of electric transmission and distribution power lines.
Fortis has two LNG plants in BC, at Mount Hayes near Ladysmith on Vancouver Island, and the major Tilbury plant in Delta. It is working on plans to expand the Tilbury operation and to add a marine jetty on the Fraser River.
Fortis is also building, and will operate, the Eagle Mountain – Woodfibre gas pipeline to feed the Woodfibre LNG export facility.
LNG Canada is building an LNG export facility at Kitimat BC, in the traditional territory of the Haisla Nation. The plant is expected to go into operation in mid-2025.
It will initially consist of two LNG processing units (“trains”) producing a total of 14 million tonnes of LNG per year. Expansion to four trains, and thus 28 million tonnes, is being considered.
LNG Canada is a joint venture of Shell, 40% (through Shell Canada Energy); PETRONAS, 25% (through its North Montney LNG Limited Partnership); PetroChina, 15% (through PetroChina Canada Ltd.; Mitsubishi Corporation, 15% (through subsidiary Diamond LNG Canada Partnership); and Korea Gas Corporation, 5% (through Kogas Canada LNG Ltd.)
Calgary-based TC Energy has a network of natural-gas pipelines covering 93,300 km, that carry 25% of the gas used by millions in North America.
It has a workforce of some 7,300 people, in Canada (3,500 employees), the U.S., and Mexico.
It is the parent of Coastal GasLink, whose natural-gas pipeline will feed the LNG Canada project in BC and the future Cedar LNG project of the Haisla Nation.
TC Energy is a leader, too, in renewable natural gas (RNG). Its system is currently capable of delivering 8 billion cubic feet (Bcf) per year of RNG from farms and landfills – and has another 30 Bcf per year of RNG projects in the works.
