Enbridge to Expand Athabasca Oil Sands Pipeline Capacity

By Green Car Congress on 09/05/2010 – 7:55 am PDTLeave a Comment

Enbridge Inc. will undertake an expansion of its Athabasca Pipeline to accommodate recent shipping commitments by the Christina Lake oil sands project operated by Cenovus. The expansion, to be achieved through modifications at five existing pump station facilities, as well as the addition of one new pump station, is expected to be in service in the third quarter of 2013.

The estimated cost of the project is approximately $185 million. The Athabasca Pipeline transports crude oil from various oil sands projects to the mainline hub at Hardisty, Alberta.

Since mid-2009, Enbridge has announced approximately $1.8 billion in commercially secured projects to expand and extend its Regional Oil Sands System.

Enbridge is the leading pipeline operator in the Fort McMurray to Edmonton/Hardisty corridor and is positioned to tie-in new oil sand developments to mainline pipelines and increase capacity for current customers. Enbridge’s Regional Oil Sands Infrastructure includes the Athabasca and Waupisoo pipeline systems, connecting six producing oil sands projects.
