Why invest?

The need for natural gas continues to increase as society seeks this cleaner-burning energy source for power, heating and cooling requirements 

Our low-risk, highly contracted business serves these needs with the safe, reliable and responsible operation of our natural gas transportation network. Our assets are highly connected to TC Energy’s North American network, providing upstream and downstream benefits.

TC PipeLines, LP has consistently paid distributions since our inception in 1999. Our solid financial position enables us to pursue organic growth opportunities that take full advantage of our existing natural gas infrastructure.

We believe this model will continue to deliver solid returns for our investors going forward.

With our sustainable natural gas infrastructure footprint, financial strength and careful management, we’ve proven we can adapt to change and grow within the energy industry.”
