AltaGas’s new facility will capture natural gas liquids
CALGARY— AltaGas, a natural gas, power and utilities company, has received approval to build a $235-million processing facility in Gordondale, near Grande Prairie, Alta.
The 120-million cubic-feet-per-day plant will be equipped with liquids extraction facilities to capture natural gas liquids value for AltaGas customers.
“This two-phased project will allow for early production to our Pouce Coupe facility in the coming months prior to Gordondale coming online late next year,” said David Cornhill, AltaGas CEO.
By using existing infrastructure in the area, AltaGas anticipates providing processing for early production by mid-2011. The gas processing facility is expected to be in service in late 2012.
The plant is located in the Montney resource area, one of the largest low-cost, liquids-rich resource plays in the Western Canadian sedimentary basin.
