TRANSCANADA REVISES ITS 1994/95 FACILITIES APPLICATION

 CALGARY, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- TransCanada PipeLines (NYSE: TRP) plans to submit a second revision of its 1994-95 Facilities Application to the National Energy Board (NEB) requesting permission to construct new facilities. The original Application was filed with the NEB on December 18, 1992.
 The revised application, expected to be submitted on May 28, 1993, will apply for permission to construct approximately $403 million worth of new facilities including 164.4 kilometers of pipeline and 7 new compressor units, adding 129 megawatts to the pipeline system. These additional proposed facilities will allow TransCanada to provide new services totaling 71.8 million cubic feet per day for long-haul deliveries and 211.4 million cubic feet per day for short-haul deliveries. The revisions to the application will have no impact on TransCanada's 1993 construction program.
 TransCanada will be submitting the revised application as a result of a recent decision by Ontario Hydro to downsize and/or delay all non- utility generation projects yet to be executed or approved.

Through the program, affected and interested parties can comment on the potential environmental and socio-economic impacts of the projects in their area. Where permanent facilities are involved background information and maps are provided to landowners, elected officials, federal, provincial and municipal government agencies and public interest groups. The EPN program ensures the effects of the proposal can be examined by interested and affected parties.
 The notification program for this application started on September 11, 1992 and continues to this date. All comments and concerns received by TransCanada regarding the proposed facilities and construction have been documented and form part of revised 1994-95 Facilities Application.
 The NEB has issued a `Hearing Order' specifying June 21, 1993 as the date for a public hearing to be held in Toronto, Ontario. The published Hearing Notice contains the rules and procedures for interested parties to participate in the hearing.
