SemCAMS is building yet another new sour gas plant in the region. As part of a 15 year deal just signed with Murphy Oil Company, a new facility in the Duvernay area is in the works.
The companies say the Smoke Lake Gas Plant is needed to support long term relationships with two operators developing in the Kaybob. It’s expected to be operational in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The first phase will have the capacity to process 60 million cubic feet per day of sweet and sour Montney and Duvernay gas. Combined with the Wapiti Plant already under construction, SemCAMS will have 1.7 billion cubic feet of sour gas processing ability in Canada.
SemCAMS also applied for a licence to build a 280 million cubic feet per day plant to process sour Montney gas in the Pipestone region in August. The Pipestone Central Facility could also produce up to 16,000 barrels of condensate per day, and would be connected to existing infrastructure though a proposed Pipestone Pipeline.
