Summary

Strathcona Storage Limited Partnership, joint venture of ATCO Energy Solutions Ltd (ATCO) and Petrogas Energy Corp (Petrogas) is undertaking the construction of a natural gas liquids storage facility in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada.

The project involves the construction of an NGL storage facility comprising four salt caverns with a capacity to store 400,000m3 of propane, butane and ethylene. The caverns will be built by pumping fresh water down wells and dissolving holes in the salt. The resulting salt water is brought back to the surface and held in brine ponds.

It also includes the construction of 30,000m3 sedimentation pond, 606,000m3 Brine pond, pump houses, storage tanks and related infrastructure, and installation of equipment and safety systems, and the laying of an 11km pipeline.

The brine is used later to move gas liquids in and out of the cavern. Pumping brine out of the cavern allows gas liquids to enter, and putting brine back into the cavern pushes the gas liquids out.

Nason Contracting Group Ltd, a subsidiary of Bird, was appointed to undertake the construction of a brine pond and associated pump house, as well as a sedimentation pond and pump house.

In July 2014, The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) invited public comments for the project.

CEAA issued its environmental assessment determination and decided that an environmental assessment of the designated project is not required on September 11, 2014.

In the fourth quarter of 2014, the site preparatory works were undertaken.

In January 2015, ATCO signed a long-term agreement with Petrogas to develop and operate the project.

In August 2015, Suzler Ltd was appointed as supply contractor to supply the pumps for the project and Stantec Inc. as consultants on the project. The CP Volute Style Pumps for the ethylene service and CP Volute Style Pumps for the ethylene service will be supplied.

Commercial operation has commenced for two of the salt caverns.

Construction works are underway and are expected to complete by the fourth quarter of 2017.
