Albertan gas plant to expand

OGJ editors

Pembina Pipeline Corp., Calgary, will expand capacity by 50 MMcfd at one of its gas plants at the Cutbank shallow gas processing complex to meet high plant utilization and strong demand. The complex is in west central Alberta.

On completion of the $26 million (Can.) expansion, the complex will have total raw gas processing capacity of 410 MMcfd, an increase to Pembina of 16%. The Cutbank expansion will occur at the Musreau gas plant, one of the three plants that make up the complex.

Pembina expects the expansion, subject to regulatory and environmental approval, be in service by mid-2012. The company entered into contracts with minimum terms of 5 years with area producers for the entire expansion capacity on a fee-for-service basis.

Pembina transports crude oil and NGLs produced in Western Canada, owns and operates oil sands pipelines, and has a growing presence in midstream and gas services.
