Canada's AltaGas gets final nod for Montney gas plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 22
-- AltaGas Ltd., Calgary, has received final regulatory approval to begin building its 120-MMcfd Gordondale gas processing plant about 100 km northwest of Grande Prairie, Alta. The plant will be equipped with liquids extraction (OGJ, June 6, 2011, p. 88).

AltaGas Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Cornhill said the two-phase project will allow for early production to the company’s Pouce Coupe plant in the months before the Gordondale plant comes online in late 2012.

The Gordondale plant and gathering system will cost about $235 million. It is in the Montney resource area, one of “the largest, low-cost, liquids rich resource plays in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin,” the company reported.

The plant will allow AltaGas to several producers in the area. Addition of deep cut capability to the project allows producers to extract additional value for liquids from the gas.
