SemCAMS is proposing the construction of a sour gas plant capable of processing up to 280 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

“The facility support the growing need for energy processing and transport capacity in the region,” SemCAMS documents reveal.

The project is slated for the Pipestone area 24 km south west of Grande Prairie and 9 km south of Wembley. The project also proposes 40 km of pipeline connecting the facility to the Wapiti Simonette pipeline.

The proposed Pipestone Central Facility is located in the County of Grande Prairie, nine kilometers south west of Wembley and north of the Wapiti River. This right-of-way will connect with existing liquid and natural gas pipelines in the Grovedale area, and continue to the SemCAMS Wapiti and Kaybob K3 sour gas plants.

Timeline documents reveal construction of the Pipestone Central Facility is targeted to begin in early 2018 following regulatory approval, and is expected to be fully online by 2020.

“We want to share information and gather your input early and throughout the development of our projects. We look forward to hearing your feedback and responding to your questions as part of the planning process,” said a spokesperson.

“Our desire is to work together to ensure that we understand what’s important."

The meeting goes tonight Oct. 19, beginning at 4 to 8pm at the Nighthawk Adventure Park in Grande Prairie.
