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 the transportation of propane from the North Pine Facility to the Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal. 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 ultimate capacity for up to 20,000 Bbls/d. The second 10,000 Bbls/d NGL separation train is expected to follow after completion of the first train, subject to sufficient commercial support from area producers.

Two eight inch diameter NGL supply pipelines (the North Pine Pipelines), each approximately 40 km in length, will also be constructed to connect AltaGas' existing Alaska Highway truck terminal (the Truck Terminal) to the North Pine Facility. One supply line will carry C3+ with the other carrying C5+. The existing Townsend NGL 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 via the Truck Terminal. Logging, clearing and mulching activities have been completed and civil construction activities will commence in the second quarter of 2017. The target commercial on-stream date for the North Pine Facility and the North Pine Pipelines is expected in the first quarter of 2018.
