The company intends to double the facility’s existing C3+ fractionation capacity from 30,000bpd to 65,000bpd.

The project will include the construction of new product receipt facilities, operational storage and pipeline interconnections, in conjunction with the fractionators.

Currently, the company is carrying out detailed engineering work related to the project, and is targeting the completion by the first quarter of 2016.

The new fractionator will be capable of handling a C3+ mix stream of NGLs, (a mixture of propane, butane and condensate), according to the company.

Keyera president and COO David Smith said, "This project will enhance our integrated service offering in the Fort Saskatchewan area, allowing our customers to turn their NGL production into cash flow."
