Feds grant TransCanada Alaska pre-filing status for gas pipeline

Posted: Tuesday, May 05, 2009

ANCHORAGE - The federal government has told TransCanada Alaska Co. it can start work on the Alaska natural gas pipeline project.

The Canadian company has been granted pre-filing status by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. TransCanada is the second company to be granted pre-filing status. Denali, a pipeline project backed by oil companies BP and ConocoPhillips, was granted pre-filing status last June.

The filings allow project backers to coordinate with the federal agency as they prepare to file formal applications.

TransCanada holds an exclusive state license to build a pipeline. Denali pipeline is a competing project.
