AltaGas' extraction assets include interests in six of the 10 extraction plants in Canada, and are strategically located straddling high-volume pipeline transmission systems that transport natural gas to end markets. These extraction plants reprocess the gas, recovering residual ethane and natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the natural gas system.
AltaGas' transmission pipelines provide natural gas and condensate transportation services between processors and distribution systems, end-users or other downstream pipelines. We own and operate six transmission pipelines within the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin (WCSB) - five for transportation of natural gas and one for shipping condensate.
All of our extraction and transmission facilities are long-life assets underpinned by long-term contracts with little exposure to commodity price risk. They contribute to stable, long-term cash flows.
