NIT to TEP Alberta Receipt Service Update - Additional Cost Recovery (effective November 1, 2023)

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 November 1, 2023 has decreased from last quarter as outlined below:
