NOVA'S ALBERTA GAS TRANSMISSION DIVISION REPORTS SIXTH SUCCESSIVE YEAR OF RECORD GAS DELIVERIES

 CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- For the sixth successive year, the Alberta Gas Transmission Division (AGTD) of NOVA Corp. of Alberta (NYSE: NVA, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver: NVA) transported record volumes of natural gas on behalf of its customers. In 1992, AGTD's total field receipts were 3.4 trillion cubic feet (tcf), up 13.1 percent vs. 1991 receipts of 3.0 tcf. Average daily receipts for 1992 were 9.4 billion cubic feet (bcf), compared with 8.3 bcf in 1991. A single-day-record was set on Nov. 24, 1992, when 11.2 bcf of natural gas was received into AGTD's system.
 "Demand for Alberta natural gas is growing at a very healthy rate, and AGTD's system is growing with that demand," said Bruce Simpson, president of AGTD. Simpson noted that reliable gas transportation service has been available to meet the needs of customers throughout recent peak demand periods.
 Continued, steady growth in natural gas deliveries is projected for 1993, and for several years thereafter. AGTD plans to spend an average of $500 million per year on system expansion and upgrades through 1995.
 Deliveries destined for central Canada and the eastern United States showed the most dramatic growth. Volumes moving through AGTD's Empress border station (for delivery into TransCanada PipeLines' system) were up 20.9 percent. In 1992, AGTD moved 1.8 tcf through Empress, compared with 1.5 tcf in 1991. A single-day record was set on Dec. 12, 1992, when 5.9 bcf of gas moved through Empress.
 Deliveries destined for U.S. Midwest markets also rose significantly. At AGTD's McNeill border station, volumes were up 18.0 percent compared with 1991 (452 bcf in 1992 vs. 383 bcf in 1991).
 Total deliveries of gas for use within Alberta were down 1.0 percent, from 603 bcf in 1991 to 597 bcf in 1992. Deliveries destined for the western U.S. were also down slightly, from 515 bcf to 507 bcf, a decrease of 1.6 percent.
 AGTD is a division of NOVA Corp. of Alberta. AGTD's pipeline network is the primary system through which Alberta natural gas is transported for use inside the province and for delivery to border points for export.
