Pembina Pipeline Corp. has filed the necessary regulatory applications to the Alberta Energy Regulator for its Fox Creek, Alberta to Namao Junction, Alberta segment of its $2 billion Phase III pipeline expansion.
The Fox Creek to Namao Junction project consists of a 270-km, 24-inch pipeline originating from a tie-in point at Pembina’s pump station at Fox Creek and terminate at a tie-in point at an existing facility at Namao Junction. This segment will have initial capacity of 320,000 bpd and an ultimate capacity of over 500,000 bpd with the addition of midpoint pump stations.
As part of the project, Pembina completed consultation related to, and applied to the AER for, an additional 16-inch pipeline from Fox Creek to Namao (this filing was submitted at the same time as the 24-inch pipeline). Pembina expects to make a decision on the second pipeline later this year. Pembina expects the project to be in service between late-2016 and mid-2017.
