Conventional Pipelines

Pembina started in 1954 with conventional pipelines and has expanded this business to meet the growing needs of producers in Alberta and British Columbia (BC). Today, the Company owns and operates 8,200 km of conventional pipelines which transport approximately half of Alberta's conventional crude oil production, about thirty percent of the natural gas liquids (NGL) produced in western Canada, and virtually all of the conventional oil and condensate produced in BC.

This extensive network enables us to provide reliable, cost-effective service to our customers in the oil and natural gas producing regions of both provinces. View Map »

Oil Sands & Heavy Oil

Pembina plays an important and growing role in supporting Alberta’s oil sands industry, transporting synthetic crude oil from the Syncrude Canada Ltd. and Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. oil sands operations near Fort McMurray, Alberta to markets near Edmonton. Pembina also services oil sands producers operating southwest of Fort McMurray and heavy oil producers in the Peace River/Seal region of Alberta by providing both diluent and diluted bitumen pipeline transportation.

In all, Pembina has approximately 1,650 km of oil sands pipelines with about 30 percent of the total take-away capacity from the Athabasca oil sands region. View Map »

  • The crude oil segment, which represents the Company’s “legacy” midstream operations, is situated at key sites across Pembina’s operations and comprises a network of truck terminals as well as large terminals at downstream hub locations which include storage and pipeline connectivity.
  • The NGL segment includes two large operating systems: Redwater West and Empress East.

Gas Services

Pembina's operations include a growing natural gas gathering and processing business, which is strategically positioned in active and emerging NGL-rich plays in the WCSB and integrated with Pembina's other businesses. Gas Services provides gas gathering, compression, and both shallow and deep cut processing services for its customers, primarily on a fee-for-service basis under long-term contracts. The NGL extracted through these processes are transported on Pembina's Conventional Pipelines. View Map »

Pembina's operating assets in this business include:
