Pembina announces Phase VI pipeline expansion
16 May 2018
Pembina Pipeline Corporation (Pembina) has announced a further expansion of its Peace Pipeline system (Phase VI). This is done to accommodate incremental volume commitments in support of growth in the Montney and Deep Basin resource plays.
The Company's Pipeline Division has continued to receive strong customer demand for its transportation services, which has resulted in a significant and ongoing build-out of its pipeline systems. Pembina's Phase III expansion, previously placed into service in July 2017, expanded capacity between Fox Creek and Namao, Alberta, the Company's corridor that transports crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids into the Edmonton area market. The Company is also currently progressing construction of its Phase IV expansion (Phase IV), which is adding capacity between Fox Creek and Namao, and its Phase V expansion.
Following the completion of Phase IV, the Company will have approximately 1.1 million barrels per day (mmbpd) of total capacity for delivery into the Edmonton area market. Pembina has the ability to further expand capacity to at least 1.3 mmbpd through the addition of pump stations and other upgrades between Fox Creek and Namao.
