Inter Pipeline To Start $100 Million Crude Expansion Project

August 2014, Vol. 241, No. 8

Inter Pipeline Ltd. plans a $100 million expansion of its Mid-Saskatchewan pipeline system. The project involves construction of over 50 km of mainline pipe, 40 km of pipeline laterals and associated pumping and metering facilities.

Once the pipelines are in service, 95,000 bpd of new capacity will be added to the system to handle oil volumes from the new battery connections and provide capacity for future third-party connections.

Inter Pipeline expects the expansion to enter commercial service in phases beginning in late 2014 with the project fully completed by mid-2015.
