Sign Our Petition to FERC

In April 2024, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued an order to allow construction of TC Energy's Northwest XPress expansion project. Thank you to all who signed our petition below and who contacted federal regulators on your own to show support. Earlier this year, a coalition of industry opponents called on the Biden administration and the EPA to invoke its authority under the Clean Air Act and intervene in FERC's October 2023 approval of the project process to halt progress.

We will alert you to any further advocacy needs! Any signatures collected moving forward may be included in future submissions to support this project if needed.


RE: Docket No. CP22-2-000: Gas Transmission Northwest's GTN XPress

Dear Secretary:

I stand with Pipeliners Local 798 in support of TC Energy’s Gas Transmission Northwest Pipeline (GTN) XPress Project. This is a $335 million investment in the natural gas infrastructure and delivery network in Oregon, Washington and Idaho that will help meet increased market demand across the region.

As the company’s largest pipeline investment, GTN currently provides a critical service delivering reliable, cost-effective natural gas from Western Canada and the Rocky Mountains to local utilities and facilities across the Pacific Northwest and California. The GTN XPress Project will ensure this system continues to safely deliver this energy source to families and businesses across the region.

I support the GTN XPress Project for the following key reasons:

  • Projects like this are necessary to meet the region’s growing demand for clean-burning natural gas, which has made up a larger portion of the electricity mix in Oregon, in particular, in recent years as the state phases out coal;
  • Investment in the GTN pipeline system will ensure reliable energy delivery for nearly half a million average American homes and businesses;
  • A $335 million investment, GTN is TC Energy’s largest-ever organic growth opportunity, supporting good jobs for local craftsmen and generating substantial economic activity.

Residents, business owners and community members across the Pacific Northwest are counting on investments like the GTN XPress Project to help the natural gas delivery network continue to meet their daily energy needs. This is why I urge the swift approval of necessary permits for this project.

Signed,

We submitted this comment to the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC) in August 2022 during its review of the GTN XPress Project's Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Upon hearing that the Commission may vote on the project in the Fall of 2023 our members collected nearly 1,000 signatures, bringing this total to 2,635 signatures for our follow-up submission in September 2023. Local 798 may submit this petition to state and federal regulators and other decision makers as needed to support the GTN XPress Project.
