Townsend Gas Processing Facility – Phase 2

Townsend 2
Townsend 2 2
Townsend 2 3

British Columbia

Location

AltaGas is constructing additional gas processing equipment within its existing lease area, to meet the demand for increased gas processing capabilities in the area. By concentrating additional gas processing infrastructure at this location, it reduces the need for other smaller gas plants to be built on other new parcels of land, minimizing the environmental impacts associated with a widely distributed network of gas processing plants.

The proposed new equipment will allow the Townsend Facility to process up to an additional 99  MMcf/d of sweet natural gas. AltaGas is minimizing the proposed project’s impact by fully containing it within the Townsend Facility’s existing lease. The Facility will feature:

  • Design consistent with good engineering practices for natural gas processing facilities
  • Natural gas liquids recovery equipment to produce C3+ and C5+ liquid products
  • Continuous operator supervision

The facility is expected to be on stream at the end of 2017.
