We want to take this opportunity to affirm our support for the Canadian government’s effort to tackle climate change
There is a decades-old technology called “hot tapping” — developed in part by TransCanada and now used industry wide — that allows a new natural gas pipeline to be connected to an existing high-pressure pipe without releasing methane that would have otherwise been vented into the atmosphere in order to weld the two pipes together.
Capturing and reusing methane — a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) — instead of releasing it to the atmosphere has driven TransCanada’s research and development for decades, and continues today.
