This pipeline has an operating capacity of 140,000 bpd and starts in northern Alberta and continues south to just north of Edmonton. It is comprised of 7 pumping stations. The objective is to increase operating capacity to 250,000 bpd through several well planned outages without reducing the current operating capacity mentioned above.
It was determined that the existing pipeline can accommodate 250,000 bpd with upgrades made to several stations. The order of upgrades to these stations will be determined by the highest degree of hydraulic gain. Each station will receive new pumps, valves, instrumentation, motors, electrical buildings c/w VFD’s, switch gear, and other ancillary equipment. PTAG is instrumental in the management and coordination of scheduling, procurement, construction execution and commissioning of the entire project.
