CALGARY, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Keyera Facilities Income Fund (TSX:KEY.UN; KEY.DB; KEY.DB.A) today announced plans to strengthen its natural gas liquids (NGL) infrastructure in central Alberta. Keyera will use new and existing pipelines to collect and deliver NGL mix from west central Alberta, including its Strachan gas plant, for delivery to its fractionation facilities in the Edmonton/Fort Saskatchewan area.
In order to enhance its NGL transportation network, Keyera will convert an existing pipeline into NGL service, adding storage facilities and constructing a 6 kilometre pipeline connection. The total capital cost is expected to be approximately $11 million.
The new pipeline will enable Keyera to deliver NGLs into the Plains Midstream Canada Rangeland pipeline system for delivery to the Rimbey gas plant and north on Keyera's Rimbey Pipeline to Keyera's Fort Saskatchewan fractionation and storage facility.
"We are extremely pleased to be extending and enhancing our NGL infrastructure network in central Alberta. The project will provide another long-term, reliable connection to NGL supply for our Fort Saskatchewan facility, and will also reduce truck traffic in the area of the Strachan gas plant," said David Smith, Executive Vice President, Liquids Business Unit.
