The Horizon pipeline was initially built over three construction phases beginning in November 2006 and completed in 2008 at a cost initially estimated at CAN$290 million, and later $338 million.[3][4] The pipeline was substantially completed at a cost of CAN$400 million in July 2008.[5]

In June 2015, Pembina announced a $125-million expansion of the pipeline to increase its capacity to 250,000 barrels per day by making upgrades to mainline pump stations and other facilities.[2]
