Open House for Southwest Calgary Connector and South Glenmore Lateral
For ATCO’S Urban Pipeline Replacement Program
February 2, 2017, 4 to 8 p.m.
Grey Eagle Resort & Casino

In the fall of 2017, ATCO proposes to install a 508 mm (20”)
natural gas transmission pipeline (the Southwest Calgary Connector), and a 324
mm (12”) lateral pipeline (the South Glenmore Lateral). Both will be installed
primarily within the Southwest Calgary Transportation/Utility Corridor (TUC).
This project will include the following:
• A 508 mm (20”) natural gas transmission pipeline that will
run 14 km within the TUC from the Sarcee Trail SW/Glenmore Trail SW interchange
to Spruce Meadows Trail (HWY 22X).
• A 324 mm (12”) natural gas transmission pipeline that will
run 1.9 km along the extension of 90th Ave. from the TUC.
• Related above ground facilities.
Please refer to the map for the proposed routes for the
The Southwest Calgary Connector and South Glenmore Lateral
installations are part of ATCO’s Urban Pipeline Replacement (UPR) Program. In
2014, ATCO received approval from the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) to
proceed with its UPR Program. The Program will see high-pressure natural gas
transmission pipelines in Calgary and Edmonton neighborhoods recommissioned to
lower-pressure natural gas distribution service or abandoned and new, modern
high-pressure natural gas transmission pipelines installed primarily within the
TUCs that surround the cities. The Program will modernize the natural gas
network and add the capacity needed to meet the growing demand for natural gas
in two of Alberta’s largest centres.
