North Pine Liquids Separation Project

Overview

North Pine Liquids Separation Project

North Pine, BC

Location

20,000 bbls/d

Capacity

Yes

Operator

C3+ and C5+

Fuel Type

100%

Ownership

On October 19, 2016 AltaGas reached a Final Investment Decision for the construction, ownership and operation of the North Pine Facility to be located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of Fort St. John, British Columbia.

The North Pine Facility will be connected to existing AltaGas infrastructure in the region and will have access to the CN rail network, allowing for transportation of propane from the Facility to the Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal currently under development.

AltaGas will be constructing the North Pine Facility with two separate NGL separation trains each capable of processing up to 10,000 Bbls/d of propane plus NGL mix (C3+) for a total of 20,000 Bbls/d. The first phase will also include 6,000 Bbls/d of condensate (C5+) terminalling capacity, with total capacity for up to 20,000 Bbls/d.

On December 16, 2016 AltaGas received its permits from the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission for the construction of the North Pine Pipelines. AltaGas is planning to construct two NGL supply pipelines each approximately eight inches in diameter and 40 kilometres in length that will connect the North Pine Facility to AltaGas’ recently completed AltaGas Truck Terminal. One supply line will carry C3+ with the other carrying C5+.

At the Truck Terminal, the two existing 30 kilometre NGL egress pipelines (the Townsend Egress Pipelines) currently delivering product from AltaGas’ Townsend Facility will be connected to the North Pine Pipelines to enable shipment of NGL produced at the Townsend Facility directly to the North Pine Facility.

Site preparation for the North Pine Facility and the North Pine Pipelines is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017 with a targeted commercial on-stream date in the second quarter of 2018.
