Keyera, Plains solicit interest in construction of pipeline system

April 25, 2013 By    

Keyera Corp. and Plains Midstream Canada ULC are soliciting interest in the construction of a jointly owned liquids pipeline system in northwest Alberta, Canada, the companies announced. The proposed Western Reach Pipeline System, which could be operational by late 2015, is anticipated to run from the Gordondale area of northwestern Alberta to Alberta’s natural gas liquids energy hub in Fort Saskatchewan. Keyera and Plains have begun an open season process seeking nonbinding nominations for volumes to underpin construction. Keyera and Plains anticipate that the Western Reach Pipeline will consist of two new-build pipelines, with one dedicated to a mixture of propane, butane and condensate and the other intended for segregated condensate service. Customers on the Western Reach Pipeline will have the option to direct their natural gas liquids mix and segregated condensate to a variety of fractionation, storage, pipeline and terminal facilities at the Fort Saskatchewan energy hub. This is where the majority of Canada’s natural gas liquids are aggregated for fractionation and subsequent delivery to end-use customers. Plains Midstream Canada ULC is a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline LP.
