Keyera expanding Fort Saskatchewan NGL fractionation

Keyera Corp. is expanding its NGL fractionation and storage site in Fort Saskatchewan (KFS), more than doubling C3+ capacity to 65,000 b/d from 30,000 b/d. The project will also include new product receipt facilities, operational storage, and pipeline interconnections. Detailed engineering work is under way, with Keyera targeting first-quarter 2016 completion.

The fractionator will handle a C3+ NGL mix stream—a mixture of propane, butane, and condensate. This incremental C3+ mix fractionation capacity is in addition to the de-ethanizer currently under construction at KFS (OGJ Online, Sept. 11, 2012), which will allow Keyera to fractionate roughly 30,000 b/d of C2+ mix—ethane, propane, butane, and condensate.

Keyera last year proposed a 12-in. OD condensate pipeline connecting its Alberta Diluent Terminal in Edmonton to its Fort Saskatchewan Pipeline System (OGJ Online, Aug. 2, 2013).

Long-term agreements provide commercial support for the $220-million C3+ project and Keyera is negotiating with other producers for the remaining capacity.
