The North Pine Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) Facility project is located approximately 40 kilometres northwest of Fort St. John, British Columbia. The facility will have two separate NGL separation trains, each capable of processing up to 10,000 Bbls/d of propane plus NGL mix (C3+), for a total of 20,000 Bbls/d. The first phase will also include 6,000 Bbls/d of condensate (C5+) terminalling capacity, with ultimate capacity for up to 20,000 Bbls/d. The second 10,000 Bbls/d NGL separation train is expected to follow after completion of the first train, subject to sufficient commercial support from area producers.

Construction on the first train is tracking under budget and ahead of its previous schedule of the first quarter of 2018, with an online date now expected in early December 2017. This investment will be backstopped by long-term supply agreements with Painted Pony for a portion of the total capacity, and will include dedication of all of Painted Pony’s NGL produced at the Townsend and Blair Creek facilities. The remaining capacity is expected to be filled with NGL produced in the area.

A new rail siding has been completed, to allow loading of an average of 25 cars per day at maximum capacity. AltaGas is also building two 8-inch diameter pipelines, each approximately 40 kilometres in length, that will connect AltaGas' existing Alaska Highway truck terminal to the North Pine Facility. One supply line will carry C3+ with the other carrying C5+. The North Pine Facility will be connected to existing AltaGas infrastructure in the region and will use the existing CN rail network to connect to Canada’s west coast as well as AltaGas’ Ridley Island Propane Export Terminal, which is also currently under construction near Prince Rupert.
