3 TransCanada Energy Assets
More than 40,000 miles of pipelines Keystone Pipeline and Keystone XL add 4,000 miles to TransCanada’s pipeline network 370 BCF of natural gas storage capacity 19 power plants comprising 10,900 megawatts – wind, hydropower, nuclear, natural gas This map gives you a look at the geographic reach of TransCanada’s assets, including: We operate more than 40,000 miles of pipeline assets either owned outright or in partnership with others; We operate a growing fleet of power generation - wind, hydropower, nuclear and natural gas power generation facilities We supply electrical power throughout the US and Canada; We are an energy infrastructure company with operations in Canada, United States and Mexico. We have ongoing relationships with more than 40,000 landowners.

4 second-largest oil reserves
Why Build Keystone? Canada has the world’s second-largest oil reserves Canada supplies more oil to the United States than any country Top State in Crude Production: million bbl/d Top State in Petroleum Refining: 4.7 million bbl/d Top Refinery Capacity: Baytown TX, 572,500 bbl/d

5 TransCanada ANR System – KS
ANR Pipeline in Kansas Natural Gas Transmission 742 miles of pipeline along 381 miles of right of way 60 year operating history in KS Five compressor stations Three dozen workers employed Operations in Meade, Clark, Comanche, Kiowa, Edwards, Stafford, Reno, Rice, McPherson, Saline, Dickinson, Geary, Riley, Pottawatomie, Jackson, Nemaha and Brown counties. More than $90,000 in charitable contributions since 2008

6 Keystone Pipeline System
2008 – 2009 Construction = 2,148 miles, 30 - inch pipe Total Capacity 590,000 bbl/day 2010 is Year 3 of a three-year construction schedule Keystone XL 1,980 miles, 36-inch pipeline 500,000 bbl/day Regulatory review, environmental studies, routing, public consultation Capital Value Keystone System: ~$12 billion Keystone XL is designed to deliver an initial capacity of 700,000 bpd, expandable to 900,000 bpd. Keystone XL will be operated as part of integrated Keystone Pipeline System Maximum nominal capacity of the combined Keystone System is 1.5 million bpd The need for this pipeline is demonstrated by long-term contract commitments. US refiners and crude oil marketers have executed binding contracts for 910,000 bpd for an average term of 18 years. Keystone XL has an estimated capital cost of about $7 billion. With the $5 billion Keystone Pipeline, the system overall will have a capital value of about $12 billion. In terms of timing: We will place the Keystone line in service this year and begin deliveries to Wood River and Patoka. In 2010, we will complete the Keystone Cushing line and begin deliveries to Cushing, Oklahoma. Pending regulatory approvals, Keystone XL construction will occur in 2011 and 2012.

10 Pipeline Construction: An Assembly Line

11 Keystone Operations Real-time remote control and monitoring of pump stations and mainline valves (SCADA) 24-hour monitoring Multiple leak detection systems Pipeline Integrity Management Program Damage Prevention Program including participation in state Pipeline Assoc. (KPA) and KS Common Ground Alliance. Aerial surveillance (26 / year)

12 Keystone Operations Remotely operated valves connected by satellite telemetry system, supply key data on pipeline flow, pressure, 24 x 7 response via Oil Control Center

13 Keystone Commitment To design, construct and operate a safe pipeline
To build and operate in a socially and environmentally responsible manner To meet or exceed industry and government standards To consult with stakeholders To treat landowners with respect and fairness

14 TransCanada Expectations for Excavation work on ROW
Preplanning needs to happen well before work activity Locates prior to TC Keystone Staff onsite to witness and observe, advise TC Procedures reviewed and followed (potholing, separation) P.P.E. requirements followed Everyone goes home safe There’s a few things out there! 14
