Oil and gas company Pengrowth Energy will resume service at its Swan Hills gas gathering pipeline system in north central Alberta, Canada.

The company has received approval from the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) for the restart of the pipeline.

The gas gathering system is anticipated to return to service this week.

This will allow approximately 1,500 barrel of oil equivalent per day of production net to Pengrowth Energy.

Pengrowth Energy originally operated as an income trust under the name Pengrowth Energy Trust until its conversion to a corporation in December 2010.
