Reuters

CALGARY, Alberta, July 31 (Reuters) - Oil and gas pipeline company Transcanada Corp said on Thursday in a second quarter earnings call it was always aware Apache Corp was looking to sell at least a piece of its interest in the Kitimat, BC, LNG project.

U.S. oil and gas company Apache announced earlier on Thursday it plans to sell its interest in the $15 billion Kitimat project, in which it partners Chevron Corp.

TransCanada plans to build a $1.9 billion gas pipeline to feed the Kitimat project, providing the LNG facility goes ahead.
