Summary:

This document provides an estimate of the upstream greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) associated with
the transportation capacity on the Trans Mountain Expansion project, and a discussion of conditions
under which the crude oil transported could be considered incremental production
.
The Trans Mountain Expansion project proposes to expand the existing Trans Mountain pipeline system
between Edmonton (Alberta) and Burnaby (British Columbia) by increasing its nominal capacity from the
current 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day. The project would involve the construction
of a new pipeline that would effectively twin the existing pipeline through Alberta and British Columbia,
the addition of new pump stations and storage tanks, and the construction of a new dock at the
Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby (British Columbia).
