07:05 EDTPGN, TRPTransCanada selected to develop $6B in natural gas infrastructure
TransCanada (TRP) has been selected by Progress Energy Canada (PGN) being the successor by amalgamation of PETRONAS Carigali Canada Ltd. and Progress Energy Resources Corp. to design, build, own and operate the proposed $5B Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project. This proposed pipeline will transport natural gas primarily from the North Montney gas-producing region near Fort St. John, British Columbia to the recently-announced Pacific Northwest LNG export facility in Port Edward near Prince Rupert, B.C. Progress and TransCanada expect to finalize definitive agreements in early 2013, subject to approvals by their respective Boards. TransCanada will immediately commence Aboriginal and stakeholder consultation and preparation of the relevant regulatory filings for this project under B.C. jurisdiction. In addition, TransCanada proposes to extend its existing NOVA Gas Transmission system in northeast B.C. to connect both to the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission project and to additional North Montney gas supply from Progress and other parties. Initial capital cost estimates associated with extensions of the NGTL System are approximately $1B-$1.5B, with an in-service date targeted for the end of 2015.

07:13 EDTTRPTransCanada CEO comments on Keystone XL
TransCanada president and CEO Russ Girling provided a comment in advance of the debate and vote on U.S. Senate bill 2280. "I was very pleased to see another vote in the House of Representatives in favor of Keystone XL, a vote that demonstrates such broad bi-partisan support for the project. The majority of the U.S. Congress, in keeping with public opinion surveys, wants to see the Keystone gridlock come to an end so thousands of Americans can go to work building the final stage of one of the largest infrastructure projects on the books right now in the U.S. We put 9,000 Americans to work building the first two phases of the pipeline back in 2009/2010. We hired another 5,000 to build the southern leg of the project two years ago, and we want to put 9,000 more Americans to work to finish what we started. Also last week, comments were made that Keystone XL is an export pipeline. This statement is factually incorrect. Keystone XL will carry oil from both Canada and the U.S. - a receipt point at Baker, Montana is an important part of the project that will allow Bakken oil to be delivered to U.S. refineries. In fact, American-produced oil is already making its way to Gulf Coast refineries through the southern leg of Keystone."

The pipeline extension is approximately 144 miles long and has a contracted capacity of 630M cubic feet a day.
14:26 EDTTRPTransCanada says Sandell analysis continues to be 'flawed'
TransCanada commented on materials made public by Sandell Asset Management: "TransCanada appreciates constructive input from shareholders and we actively engage in open dialogue with them to discuss all aspects of our operations and corporate strategy. We received materials from Sandell a few months ago containing a very similar and flawed analysis to the one that was published today. After careful review, and ongoing discussions with our other shareholders, TransCanada firmly believes that our current strategy best positions us to deliver long-term value to investors. TransCanada has established itself as a leading energy infrastructure company in North America with a blue-chip portfolio of assets that has consistently delivered attractive and sustainable growth in earnings, cash flow and dividends. Importantly, the Company has delivered a 15% annualized total shareholder return since 2000. We have a well-defined strategic plan to increase long-term shareholder value, including our strong focus on pipelines and power generation opportunities, and we remain focused on continuing to deliver on this plan successfully."

08:14 EDTTRPSandell Asset Management sends letter to TransCanada board
Sandell Asset Management, a significant shareholder of TransCanada, has publicly released a letter and White Paper to the Board of Directors of the Company in anticipation of its upcoming Investor Day to stimulate further discussions among all stakeholders as to the best long term corporate structure for TRP. Tom Sandell, CEO of Sandell, stated: “Although we are excited about the recent positive developments at TransCanada, we are disappointed that the Company has neither fully embraced the Master Limited Partnership structure nor emphasized cash flow metrics such as Adjusted Funds From Operations to highlight the Company’s ample tax assets, low maintenance capital requirements and capacity for dividend payment. Furthermore, we believe a spinoff of the Energy segment is the best long term course for this asset to attract a world-class, dedicated management team to deal with upcoming opportunities and challenges within the sector and to highlight the premium value of the Pipeline business.” In Sandell’s analysis, fully utilizing the Company’s existing MLP, TC PipeLines LP and highlighting AFFO metrics would serve to enhance the Company’s ability to finance its significant Capital Program by increasing dividend growth expectations and lowering cost of capital for both TRP and TCP. Additionally, by engaging in an ‘all-in’ dropdown to TCP and by restructuring its incentive distribution rights, TCP would be transformed into a powerful player in the US MLP industry, increasing organic growth prospects and allowing it to participate in the current wave of M&A to bolster its strategic positioning and distribution growth profile. Sandell believes that, through the implementation of these steps, TRP’s share price would immediately trade at its intrinsic value of $75 per share reflecting a corporate structure that maximizes the future value of TRP, TCP and the separated Energy business.
