SemCAMS has completed commissioning of its Wapiti gas plant, which is now fully operational.
The 200 mmcf/d plant, which is 95 per cent contracted, began processing raw sour gas and sending the sales gas to market on Jan. 27, 2019, more than two months ahead of the original April 1, 2019 target. Costs to construct the plant came in on budget.
“The successful completion of this project on budget and ahead of schedule reflects the strength of SemCAMS’s engineering and operations staff and the company’s best-in-class ability to execute complex, large-scale projects in a safe, cost-efficient and timely manner,” said Dave Gosse, president of SemCAMS ULC and executive vice-president at SemGroup Corporation.
“We look forward to continuing this trend on the other projects we are pursuing in our effort to provide Montney and Duvernay producers competitive and cost-effective midstream services.”
The Wapiti Gas Plant has a full collection of midstream services including compression, sour gas sweetening, liquid recovery and condensate stabilization. The plant is currently connected to NOVA Gas Transmission Ltd. (NGTL) pipeline to transport sales gas to market, and an additional sales gas connection to the Alliance Pipeline is expected to be complete in April.
The dual sales gas connections ensure customer flexibility and variability on their sales gas egress. In addition, the plant is interconnected into the other gas plants in the SemCAMS network via the Wapiti/Simonette Pipeline Systems, providing additional operational synergies to producers.
