TC Energy Corporation TRP signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Irving Oil Limited to explore the development of clean energy projects in Canada.

Both companies identified a series of potential exploration projects focused on decarbonizing existing assets and implementing technologies to reduce emissions. The projects seek to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases (“GHG”) and creating opportunities in New Brunswick and other areas in Atlantic Canada.

TC Energy and Irving Oil have long-term experience in collaborative activities. This includes the development and operation of the Grandview Cogeneration facility, which is a 90-MW low-carbon power plant placed inside the Saint John refinery.

The Grandview Cogeneration plant, which was commissioned in 2004, contributed to significantly reduce the carbon intensity of the Saint John refinery, leading to a reduction in up to 750,000 tons of GHG emissions. Hence, it positioned the facility in the top tier of global refineries.

Per the latest MoU, the partnership will initially focus on upgrade projects at Irving Oil’s refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick. It aims to significantly reduce emissions by the production and use of low-carbon power generation.

The partnership will also explore medium and long-term opportunities, which will support the decarbonization of local industry through the production and delivery of low-emission hydrogen along with a carbon-capture and sequestration network.

The companies will take advantage of their industry knowledge, relationships and infrastructure to reduce GHG emissions, create employment opportunities, and position New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada for growth through clean energy transition.

The scope, time limits and cost estimates of the joint initiatives will be subject to the outcome of feasibility studies and outstanding regulatory procedures. TC Energy, through collaboration with industry partners and by leveraging its valuable infrastructure, can offer significant advances toward the energy future, while providing safe, reliable energy people need daily.
