NIT to TEP Service Update
Additional Cost Recovery – Effective February 1, 2024

TransGas’ NIT to TEP Service is for receipt points that initiate at Nova Inventory Transfer (NIT) with TransGas being responsible to contract and transport natural gas through the Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) system in Alberta.

Customers utilizing this specific service are:

  • Charged TransGas’ standard receipt transportation rates; and 
  • Subject to an Additional Cost Recovery (ACR) charge related to the transportation of gas to the Saskatchewan border. 

The ACR charge to recover from customers utilizing the NIT to TEP Service effective February 1, 2024 has increased from last quarter as outlined below:
