Pembina has a strong record of community engagement, environmental stewardship and safe, reliable operations. We believe in staged, carefully managed growth that respects the interests and concerns of our stakeholders while providing the pipelines and energy services our growing economy demands.

Phase IV, V & VI Expansions

Phase IV:

Phase IV is comprised of adding two pump stations on the recently installed 24" pipeline from Fox Creek to Namao, Alberta. Phase IV is expected to increase capacity in this corridor by approximately 180,000 bpd. We expect to place this expansion in service in late 2018. Pembina has the ability to further expand capacity between Fox Creek and Namao by adding additional pump stations.

Phase V:

Phase V includes building a new 95 km, 20" pipeline from Lator to Fox Creek, Alberta as well as other infrastructure including: 40,000 barrels of operational and condensate storage, new tie-ins and site modifications, a new pump station near Dawson Creek, BC and upgrading an existing pump station in Gordondale, AB. Phase V is aimed at addressing capacity constrainsts between Lator and Fox Creek by adding 260,000 bpd of capacity in that corridor which will support growth in the prolific Monteny and Deep Basin resource plays. Pembina expects to bring Phase V into service in late-2018.  

Phase VI:

Phase VI includes upgrades at Gordondale, Alberta, a 16-inch pipeline from LaGlace to Wapiti, Alberta and associated pump station upgrades, and a 20-inch pipeline from Kakwa to Lator, Alberta. The expansion is expected to cost approximately $280 million, and is anticipated to be placed into service in early 2020, subject to environmental and regulatory approval.

Duvernay II

On November 6, 2017, Pembina announced that it has executed further agreements to construct and operate the first tranche of infrastructure development under its previously announced 20-year infrastructure development and service agreement with Chevron and KUFPEC. The Agreement includes over 230,000 acres of land dedication in the liquids-rich Kaybob region of the Duvernay.

Pembina has been requested to develop and construct:
  • raw product separation and water removal infrastructure;
  • a condensate stabilization facility with approximately 30,000 barrels bpd of raw inlet condensate handling capacity;
  • a 100 million cubic feet per day gas processing facility with approximately 5,000 bpd of propane-plus liquids capacity; and
  • a 10-inch condensate pipeline lateral that will connect to the Company's Peace Pipeline system.
Duvernay II will be located at the Company's existing Duvernay complex. Pembina expects the total capital cost to be approximately $290 million with an anticipated in service date of mid to late 2019, subject to regulatory and environmental approvals. The facilities will have a 20-year contractual life and would be back-stopped by a combination of fee-for-service and fixed-return arrangements. Additionally, Peace pipeline and Redwater NGL fractionation agreements were also executed.

Prince Rupert Terminal

On November 29, 2017, Pembina announced that its Board of Directors approved the development of the Company's previously proposed liquefied petroleum gas ("LPG") export terminal (the "Prince Rupert Terminal" or the "Project").

The Prince Rupert Terminal will be located on Watson Island, British Columbia on lands leased from a wholly-owned subsidiary of the City of Prince Rupert (the "City"). Through site assessments and engagement with key stakeholders, the Company has confirmed Watson Island as the ideal location for the Project to be developed and has executed definitive commercial agreements with the City.

The project is best viewed as a small-scale rail terminal, moving LPG from rail cars to 'handysize' ships destined for international markets. There is no on-site processing or refrigeration, and smaller volumes for storage and movement require a smaller footprint relative to other energy facilities proposed on the west coast. The Prince Rupert Terminal is expected to have a permitted capacity of approximately 25,000 barrels per day of LPG and is expected to be in service mid-2020, subject to receiving necessary regulatory and environmental approvals.

Empress Fractionation

Pembina is constructing fractionation and terminalling facilities at Empress, Alberta. The expansion is expected to add approximately 30 thousand barrels per day of propane-plus capacity to Pembina's Empress East system. The project is expected to cost approximately $120 million and is anticipated to be placed into service in late 2020, subject to environmental and regulatory approval.


North Central Liquids Hub

The North Central Liquids Hub ("NCLH") will support the operations of the Cutbank Ridge Partnership ("CRP") within the world-class Montney resource play. The NCLH will provide separation and stabilization of increased condensate volumes from the CRP to support the Saturn and Sunrise gas plants.


Burstall Ethane Storage Cavern

The Burstall storage cavern is an salt cavern ethane storage facility with a capacity of approximately 1 million barrels. The Burstall storage cavern is underpinned by a 20-year firm contract with NOVA Chemicals and provides valuable operational storage that mitigates potential supply disruptions to Alberta petrochemical facilities. The project is expected to cost approximately $190 million and is anticipated to be placed into service in late 2018.


PDH/PP Facility

Project Background

This Project is an opportunity to develop crucial new market demand for propane in the Province of Alberta. Over the past decade, approximately 85 percent of Alberta's propane production has been exported across North America. Developing Alberta-based, value-add infrastructure will increase local propane demand benefitting Alberta's oil and gas producers, as well as the Province, by increasing regional economic activity and tax base.

The polypropylene would be transported in a pellet form to markets across North America and internationally. Polypropylene is one of the world's most commonly used polymers. Traditional uses include automobile plastics, medical supplies, home appliances, transparent containers as well as numerous other applications.

With access to the largest supply of propane in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin, CKPC is ideally suited to facilitate the development of this Project. Pembina’s completion of its third fractionator at the Redwater site, brings its total fractionation capacity over 200,000 barrels per day and approximately 60,000 barrels per day of propane supply in the Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta area.

The proposed integrated propylene and polypropylene production facility ("PDH/PP Facility") is a project being developed by Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation ("CKPC"), a joint venture between Pembina and Petrochemical Industries Company K.S.C. ("PIC").

The Project would be located on land owned by Pembina in Sturgeon County, Alberta. The facility would use propane as its feedstock, converting it to propylene, and then further process it into polypropylene. Once operational, the PDH/PP Facility could consume approximately 23,000 barrels per day of propane sourced from Pembina's Redwater complex as well as other regional fractionation facilities and produce over 1.2 billion pounds per year of polypropylene. For Pembina, this investment represents a material extension of our natural gas liquids value chain strategy and creates a significant incremental local market for western Canadian hydrocarbons. The preliminary capital cost estimate of the PDH/PP Facility is $3.8 to $4.2 billion (gross).
