The Maritimes Advantage
Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline (Maritimes) is strategically located near some of the fastest-growing energy markets in North America – just one of the advantages that distinguish us from the competition in the energy transportation marketplace. Through its mainline, lateral pipelines, and interconnections, Maritimes provides customers with unparalleled access to growing Eastern Canadian and Northeastern U.S. markets.
As a result of this dependable supply, natural gas consumption along the path of the Maritimes system is growing. Power generators, industry, and communities in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, New Hampshire, and Maine now have access to clean-burning natural gas, improving both air quality and energy diversity in the region.
The Maritimes system has been designed with further expansion capability in mind. With an established pipeline system in place, our company is well-positioned to capture market growth opportunities as new supplies become available. Through the addition of compression and pipeline looping, Maritimes can expand with ease to accommodate various supply increments.
Added benefits – by expanding within its existing pipeline corridor, Maritimes provides a timing advantage to the market, and its expansion provides an environmentally superior alternative to greenfield pipeline projects.
As an established market participant, Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline and its managing partner have built exceptional customer and community relationships. Our vision is to grow our franchise and be the energy transporter of choice in the markets we serve.
Adding New Natural Gas Supply
Maritimes is ideally situated to connect emerging offshore, onshore and LNG supply sources to the dynamic markets we serve.
- Maritimes has worked closely with natural gas producers to bring on new onshore sources of natural gas supply, such as Headwater Resources’ McCully Field in New Brunswick.
- Maritimes has expanded its system through the Phase IV project to transport new supplies of natural gas sourced from the Canaport LNG terminal near Saint John, New Brunswick.
Tying in these new energy projects will substantially increase the diversity, reliability, and availability of clean-burning natural gas supply in Atlantic Canada and the Northeastern United States.
