Frontier NGL Pipeline
|This article is part of the Global Fossil Infrastructure Tracker, a project of Global Energy Monitor.|
Frontier NGL Pipeline is an NGL pipeline in British Columbia, Canada.
The pipeline begins approximately 36-kilometers west of Chetwynd, British Columbia at the proposed Frontier straddle plant. It traverses northeast near Taylor, British Columbia, which is approximately 15-kilometers south of Fort St. John, British Columbia.
- Operator: Enbridge Frontier Inc.
- Owner: Enbridge
- Capacity: 16,000 cubic metres per day
- Length: 105.6 miles / 170 km
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year:
The pipeline is a part of the larger Frontier Project, which includes a straddle plant, a pump station, and 130 to 170-kilometres of pipeline from Chetwynd to Taylor, near Fort St. John. Capital costs for the entire Frontier Project are estimated to be in the range of CAN$2.5 billion. Annual operating costs are predicted to range from CAN$25 million to CAN$50 million per year.
The pipeline will be approximately 130 to 170-kilometers of 16-inch diameter pipeline, beginning approximately 36-kilometers west of Chetwynd, British Columbia at the proposed straddle plant and adjacent initiating pump station site. It then traverses northeast near Taylor, British Columbia, which is approximately 15-kilometers south of Fort St. John, British Columbia. The proposed pipeline has a delivering capacity of approximately 16,000 cubic metres per day.
The proposed straddle plant will extract NGLs from an existing pipeline system and transport them to fractionation and rail loading facilities for further processing and transportation to B.C. markets. Fractionation and rail loading facilities would be developed near Taylor and be owned and operated by third parties.
