Pembina Pipeline’s phase V pipeline expansion
11 October 2017
Pembina Pipeline Corporation has announced that in order to accommodate incremental volume commitments from customers, the Company is adding additional infrastructure and increasing operational flexibilities to its previously announced Phase V pipeline expansion (Phase V), which included a 20 inch pipeline from Lator to Fox Creek, Alberta.
The Phase V capital cost estimate revision is a result of: USD 90M towards increased receipt station functionality at Lator by adding 40,000 barrels of operational crude and condensate storage, new tie-ins and site modifications, a new pump station near Dawson Creek, British Columbia (B.C.) and upgrading an existing pump station at Gordondale, Alberta; and USD 45M due to capital cost refinements, including changes to volume receipt locations.
Through the Phase V project enhancements, the pipeline capacity will be increased by an incremental 45,000 barrels per day (bpd) upstream of Laglace, Alberta.
Phase V is aimed at addressing capacity constraints between Lator and Fox Creek and supporting future growth in the Montney and Deep Basin resource plays. The project is expected to provide additional capacity in this corridor and access to Pembina's downstream capacity at Fox Creek.
