Pembina Pipeline receives approvals for NEBC Expansion

Pembina Pipeline Corp., Calgary, has received regulatory approval for and has initiated construction on its previously announced $235-million expansion of its pipeline system in northeast British Columbia (OGJ Online, Nov. 12, 2014).

“With regulatory sanctioning of the NEBC Expansion, we have secured approvals for the majority of the projects within our conventional pipelines business,” said Paul Murphy, Pembina senior vice-president, pipelines and crude oil facilities.

The NEBC project entails the construction of 145 km of 12-in. pipeline with a base design capacity of as much as 75,000 b/d. The system will parallel much of the existing Blueberry pipeline system northwest of Taylor, BC, to the Highway-Blair Creek area of British Columbia. The NEBC Expansion will provide a conduit for natural gas liquids and condensate produced in the liquids-rich Montney resource play to access the company’s downstream pipeline systems that feed into the Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., area, the company said.

Pembina plans to bring the NEBC Expansion on stream late this year.
