Greenview Industrial Gateway project agrees to purchase 2,000 acres of land

The Greenview Industrial Gateway project has agreed to terms with the Government of Alberta to purchase 2,000 acres of land south of Grande Prairie in order to develop and process natural gas.

MD of Greenview Reeve Tyler Olson says that this marks a historic occasion for the Grande Prairie area.

“Purchasing this land lays the foundation for long-term prosperity for our region as it opens the opportunity to deliver a world-class, integrated eco-industrial site, right here in the MD of Greenview. This plug-and-play industrial development will generate a tremendous amount of job opportunities, support local business growth, and provide economic benefits for all sectors of the region,” he says.

The $2.5 billion clean energy plant was announced by Northern Petrochemical Corporation on November 10th. The facility will convert blue methanol and blue hydrogen to blue ammonia.

CEO Geoff Bury believes a major impact of the project will be felt in the job market, as they’re hoping to keep the jobs as local as possible.

“The project will create up to 4,000 jobs during the construction period and about 400 full-time permanent jobs when the facility is operational,” he said. We also have a diversity and inclusion policy, which will ensure those jobs are available to everybody.”

The MD is also negotiating with a number of other companies that have expressed an interest in being part of the site. Construction of the facility is slated for spring of 2023 and is estimated to be completed by fall of 2026.
