Alberta gas plant completes expansion

Birchcliff Energy Ltd., Calgary, has completed the third-phase expansion of its wholly owned and operated Pouce Coupe South Gas Plant and begun operations. The expansion began processing gas about 1 month ahead of schedule, the company reported.

Birchcliff noted that, as a result of the PCS gas plant being operational, record current production is about 25,500 boe/d. Birchcliff believes it will exceed its 2012 target production of 26,000 boe/d.

Jeff Tonken, Birchcliff president and chief executive officer, said, “The PCS gas plant [will] process our Montney/Doig natural gas for more than 30 years.”

Birchcliff expects the gas plant to process about 100 MMcfd at yearend, leaving 50 MMcfd of expected processing capacity available for production growth.
