Plains Midstream Canada (PMC) plans to expand its Rangeland crude oil pipeline system for additional delivery capacity both north to Edmonton, Alta., and south to the border at Carway, Alta.

Expansion will provide incremental takeaway capacity for the East Duvernay and other Rangeland-area production, as well as south egress access out of the Edmonton market hub. Combined, the expansion will increase Rangeland’s current light crude oil capacity to 200,000 b/d. Service between Edmonton and Sundre will be expanded to 100,00 b/d from 50,000 b/d and will be capable of bidirectional service. Sundre, south to the border, will be expanded up to 100,000 b/d from 20,000 b/d.

Expected to be staged into service during this year’s second half with full capacity realized in 2021, the expansion is subject to receiving sufficient commitments from shippers and receipt of necessary permits and regulatory approvals.
