TransCanada Corp. has begun the process of seeking permits from the U.S. government to build a natural gas pipeline along the Alaska Highway.

TransCanada has the approval of the Alaskan state government to build the proposed pipeline. The 2,760 kilometer pipeline would run from Prudhoe Bay in Alaska, through the Yukon and northeastern B.C., to a hub in Alberta.
