On March 17, 2016, TC Energy entered into an agreement and plan of merger pursuant to which it will acquire Columbia Pipeline Group, Inc., a Texas-based company that operates an approximate 24,000-kilometre network of interstate natural gas pipelines extending from New York to the Gulf of Mexico, with a significant presence in the Appalachia production basin. This acquisition creates one of North America's largest regulated natural gas transmission businesses.
