CALGARY, July 12, 2016 /CNW/ - Painted Pony Petroleum Ltd. ("Painted Pony" or the "Corporation") (TSX: PPY) is pleased to announce that it has secured sufficient interim firm transportation to mitigate any impact by potential delays in the completion of the High Pine Expansion Project (the "Project") on the T-North Pipeline by Spectra Energy ("Spectra"), as the project proponents await regulatory approval to proceed.
Painted Pony's previously announced firm transportation on Spectra's T-North Pipeline was expected to begin in November 2016 corresponding with the anticipated completion of the Project. Due to possible delays in the completion of the Project, Painted Pony has proactively secured interim firm transportation beginning in October 2016 and concluding in August 2017 as a means of mitigating this risk.
