​Pembina announces another pipeline expansion to accommodate Montney, Deep Basin growth

Pembina Pipeline will build a new expansion of its Peace pipeline system to accommodate growth in the Montney and Deep Basin resource plays.

The company says it continues to receive strong customer demand for its transportation services, which has resulted in a significant and ongoing build-out of its pipeline systems.

Last July Pembina put its Phase III expansion into service, which increased capacity to transport crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids from northeast B.C. into the Edmonton area market.

The company is also currently progressing construction of its Phase IV and Phase V expansions to further build out and debottleneck this capacity. These projects are to be placed into service in late 2018.

The latest expansion, Phase VI, includes: upgrades at Gordondale, Alberta; a 16-inch pipeline from LaGlace to Wapiti, Alberta and associated pump station upgrades; and a 20-inch pipeline from Kakwa to Lator, Alberta. The approximately $280 million Phase VI expansion is anticipated to be in service in early 2020, subject to environmental and regulatory approval.

Pembina say it is continuing to secure long-term contracts on its Peace and Northern Pipeline systems and currently expects peak firm volume commitments will reach approximately 830,000 bbls/d in 2019.
