NOVA'S ALBERTA GAS TRANSMISSION DIVISION REPORTS 13 PERCENT INCREASE IN TOTAL NATURAL GAS DELIVERIES

 CALGARY, Alberta, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- NOVA's Alberta Gas Transmission Division (AGTD) transported record volumes through its system during the first three months of 1993, as the demand for Alberta natural gas continued to grow. Natural gas shipments rose 13 percent to 959 billion cubic feet (bcf) in the first quarter of 1993 from 848 bcf over the same period a year ago. Average daily shipments in the first quarter were 10.66 bcf. The same trend continued through April. AGTD is a division of NOVA Corp. of Alberta.
 "These continuing and significant increases in shipments demonstrate the ability of the Alberta supply base and its strong contribution to North American gas markets," says Eric Shelton, vice president for customer service.
 While U.S. dry gas production has remained virtually flat at 17.7 trillion cubic feet (tcf) since 1991, Canadian supply has accounted for most of the supply growth in the U.S. and Canada.
 "Virtually half of the U.S. incremental growth in demand for gas has been met by Alberta exports," says Shelton. Alberta gas exports to the United States increased 22 percent from 1.45 tcf in 1991 to 1.77 tcf in 1992.
 AGTD's pipeline network continued to operate at high levels of reliability to sustain these increased deliveries.
