Pembina to expand northeast British Columbia pipeline system

Pembina Pipeline Corp. has entered into binding agreements to proceed with a $210-million expansion to Pembina’s pipeline system in northeast British Columbia. The NEBC expansion will transport condensate and NGLs for producers in the liquids-rich Montney shale.

The project entails the construction a 160 km, 12-in. pipeline with a base capacity of 75,000 b/d that will parallel the company’s Blueberry pipeline system northwest of Taylor, BC, to the Highway-Blair Creek area of British Columbia. Pembina anticipates bringing the NEBC Expansion on stream sometime during the second-to-fourth quarter of 2017.

“Pembina has been actively engaging with producers regarding the development of the Montney play,” said Jason Wiun, Pembina vice-president, conventional pipelines, adding that the expansion will provide access to Pembina’s existing system at Taylor, BC, which feeds into Edmonton, Alta.

The project is underpinned by a long-term, cost-of-service agreement with an anchor tenant. Volumes aggregated by the expansion will feed into Pembina’s Phase III pipeline expansion downstream of Taylor.
