History[edit]

The pipeline was built for $130 million and opened in 1995. It was owned by Tuscarora Gas Transmission Company which in turn was owned by Sierra Pacific Resources (SPC) and TransCanada Corporation. The revegetation project used all native plant seed that was harvested locally, mixed then spread to cover the right of way for the pipe. Sierra Pacific Resources announced on July 10, 2006 that it is considering selling its interest in the pipeline. TC PipeLines, LP acquired the remaining interest in Tuscarora from SPC in 2007 and 2008.[citation needed]
