The Harmattan Gas Processing Complex processes and extracts gas. It is one of the largest gas plants in Alberta and is located 100 kilometres north of Calgary near Sundre Alberta.

Harmattan has natural gas processing capacity of 490 Mmcf/d consisting of sour gas treating, co-stream processing, NGL extraction, and 35,000 Bbls/d of NGL fractionation and terminalling. Harmattan also has a 450 Bbls/d capacity frac oil processing facility, a 200 tonnes/d capacity industrial grade carbon dioxide (CO2) facility and a 10,000 Bbls/d capacity NGL truck offload facility. Harmattan extracts NGLs from the raw natural gas delivered for processing, fractionates the recovered NGLs into specification ethane, propane, butane and condensate, and provides storage and terminalling services for each product.

At Harmattan, natural gas processing services are provided to approximately 70 producers under contracts with a variety of commercial arrangements and terms.

Since purchasing Harmattan in 2008, AltaGas has invested over $400 million to increase efficiency and reduce emissions at the facility. The Harmattan Complex has three co-generation units capable of producing 45 MW of power, which creates steam for processing gas and electricity for onsite use. Any excess electricity from the co-generation units goes to the Alberta power grid.
