Pembina Pipeline Corporation has entered into a 20-year infrastructure development and service agreement with Chevron Canada Limited.
The agreement includes an area of dedication by Chevron, in excess of 230,000 acres, concentrated in the liquids-rich Kaybob region of the Duvernay resource play near Fox Creek, Alberta. Under the terms of the agreement and subject to Chevron sanctioning development in the region, Chevron has the right to require Pembina to construct, own and operate gas gathering pipelines and processing facilities, liquids stabilization facilities and other supporting infrastructure for the area of dedication, along with Pembina providing long-term service for Chevron on its pipelines and fractionation facilities.
“This agreement represents an ideal long-term growth opportunity for Pembina, as it substantially strengthens our competitive positioning in a world-class resource play with long-life hydrocarbon resources, and provides for the opportunity to deploy a significant amount of capital under a low-risk, long-term commercial framework that aligns with our guard rails,” said Stuart Taylor, Pembina’s Senior Vice President, NGL & Natural Gas Facilities. “Being selected as the provider of choice for this service demonstrates the advantages associated with our safety record, relationships with the communities and, integrated service offering.”
The agreement is subject to Chevron and regulatory approvals.
