New Propane Export Facility Approved

487 pembina

Calgary-headquartered Pembine Pipeline Corp. has approved the construction of a new facility to export liquefied propane from Western Canada to markets in Asia and Central America. The project on Watson Island is expected to cost about C$260 million, up from an estimate of C$150 million made last spring, due to minor scope changes, dock maintenance, and additional site preparation. The facility, which still requires regulatory and environmental approvals, would have a permitted capacity of about 25,000 barrels per day of propane. Meanwhile, construction is underway on a propane export terminal on Ridley Island near Prince Rupert by Calgary-based AltaGas Ltd. That project is expected to cost C$475 million and have a capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per year when it opens in 2019.
