Keyera Corp. is proceeding with the development of the Key Access Pipeline System (KAPS), a natural gas liquids (NGL) and condensate pipeline system that will transport Montney and Duvernay production in northwestern Alberta to Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. The initial connections are in Keyera's fractionation in Fort Saskatchewan. Keyera has partnered in a 50/50 agreement with SemCAMS Midstream ULC, which is owned jointly by SemGroup Corporation and KKR. KAPS is expected to be operational in the first half of 2022.[1] In April 2020 Keyera announced that construction of the pipeline would be delayed by a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.[3]
