CALGARY: Pembina Pipeline Corp. is investing $26 million in the expansion of its Cutbank Complex to meet growing customer demand for natural gas.
The Calgary company said it will be increasing its shallow cut gas processing capability by 50 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d). When the expansion is complete, at the Musreau gas plant, one of the three at the Cutbank Complex in west central Alberta, will be capable of producing 410 mmcf/d of raw gas, an increase of 16%.
“Producers are benefitting from new technologies that are driving production costs down and recovery rates up,” said Stu Taylor, Pembina’s vice-president, of gas services. “This is increasing the need for gas handling, processing and transportation capacity.”
