Plains All American, Keyera solicit interest in construction of new pipeline

Keyera and Plains Midstream Canada ULC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Plains All American, announced they have entered into an arrangement to solicit interest in the construction of a jointly-owned liquids pipeline system in northwest Alberta. The proposed pipeline system, to be called the Western Reach Pipeline System, is anticipated to run from the Gordondale area of northwestern Alberta to Alberta's natural gas liquids, or NGL, energy hub in Fort Saskatchewan. Keyera and Plains have begun an open season process seeking non-binding nominations for volumes to underpin construction. Keyera and Plains anticipate that the Western Reach Pipeline will consist of two new-build pipelines, with one dedicated to a mixture of propane, butane and condensate, or NGL mix, and the other intended for segregated condensate service. The Western Reach Pipeline, expected to be approximately 570 kilometres in length, will travel through the Deep Basin area of Alberta, which contains some of the most prospective liquids-rich geological horizons being developed in western Canada, including the Montney and Duvernay zones.
