Pembina completes Phase II crude oil and condensate pipeline expansion in Canada

Calgary-based Pembina Pipeline has completed its Phase II low vapour pressure (LVP), crude oil and condensate pipeline expansion.

The Phase II LVP Expansion, which was placed into service recently, has long-term contracts with Pembina's customers.

It increases the company's Peace Pipeline System capacity by 55,000 barrels per day (bpd), bringing total capacity on the line to more than 250,000 bpd.

"With the additional capacity this expansion will provide, we're better able to get our customers' product to market."

Pembina installed five new pump stations, upgraded six existing pump stations, and added additional operational storage.

The company reconfigured existing pipelines and constructed a 10km pipeline from Gordondale to Spirit River.

Pembina conventional pipelines vice-president Jason Wiun said: "We are very pleased to be placing this expansion into service as it will help alleviate volume constraints on our systems for our customers.

"With the additional capacity this expansion will provide, we're better able to get our customers' product to market."

Pembina said its other pipeline expansion programmes are also progressing well. The company has so far brought into service 70km of new pipeline related with its Phase III crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids expansion.

The company plans to bring the 53,000 bpd natural gas liquids part of the Phase II expansion into service in the third quarter of this year.

Pembina owns and operates a system of pipelines that transport several hydrocarbon liquids including conventional and synthetic crude oil, heavy oil and oil sands products, condensate and NGL produced in western Canada and ethane produced in North Dakota.
