Introduction

Spectra Energy owns and operates a large and diversified portfolio of natural gas-related energy assets and is one of North America’s leading natural gas infrastructure companies.  Spectra Energy operates in three key areas of the natural gas industry: gathering and processing, transmission and storage, and distribution.  Its natural gas pipeline systems consist of over 19,000 miles of transmission pipelines.

The Express Pipeline System is a 1,717 mile oil transportation network that connects Canadian and United States crude oil producers to refineries in the Rocky Mountain and Midwest regions of the United States.  The Express Pipeline System consists of two crude oil pipelines: the Express Pipeline and the Platte Pipeline.  The Express Pipeline has been in operation since 1997 and transports crude oil from Hardisty, Alberta, Canada, to Casper, Wyoming.   Screen-readable versions are unavailable for some of the documents in this collection.
