We are more than a pipeline company. For more than 60 years, TransCanada has been a leader in the safe and reliable operation of North American energy infrastructure, including a growing array of natural gas and crude oil pipelines, and natural gas storage facilities.
Our team of more than 5,500 dedicated and talented employees in Canada, the United States and Mexico takes pride in managing the responsible development and delivery of vital energy to North Americans each and every day.
The Natural Gas Pipelines segment of our business consists of the Company's investments in 67,300 km (41,900 miles) of regulated natural gas pipelines and 250 Bcf of regulated natural gas storage facilities. These assets are located in Canada, the United States (U.S.) and Mexico.
Our 4,250-kilometre (2,640 mile) Keystone Pipeline System transports approximately 20 per cent of western Canadian crude oil exports to key refineries in the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast, where it is converted into fuel and other useful petroleum products. Since it began operation in June 2010, Keystone has safely transported more than one billion barrels of crude oil from Canada to U.S. markets.
TransCanada owns or has interests in 20 power generation facilities with a capacity of 13,100 megawatts (MW) – enough to power more than 13 million homes. One-third of the power we provide is generated from emission-less sources including nuclear, hydro, wind and solar. We also own and operate 368 billion cubic feet of natural gas storage capacity.
