Acquisition   Canada will fund the resumption of TMEP
Kinder Morgan has agreed to work with the Government of Canada to seek a third party buyer for the Trans Mountain Pipeline system and TMEP through July 22, 2018.

As part of the agreement, the government has agreed to fund the resumption of TMEP planning and construction work by guaranteeing TMEP’s advances under a separate Federal Government recourse credit facility until the transaction closes.

The parties expect to close the transaction late in the third quarter or early in the fourth quarter of 2018, subject to KML shareholder and applicable regulatory approvals.
