Processing Volumes Rise at Alberta Plant
Calgary-based TransCanada Gas Processing Ltd., the general
partner of TransCanada Gas Processing LP, said processing volumes
at the Cutbank Joule-Thompson (J-T) plant have increased
significantly since operations began last month due to tie-in of
Chevron Canada Resources production four months ahead of schedule.
The TransCanada Gas Processing partnership has an approximate
61% interest in TCM Facilities LP, which owns the Cutbank gathering
and processing facilities. The 100 MMcf/d Cutbank J-T plant, about
50 miles south of Grande Prairie, AB, was built to meet anticipated
demand for processing high-pressure gas brought on by a recent
discovery in the area. The Cutbank J-T Plant is 100% owned by TFL
and was built by Chevron. Initial throughput has been provided by
Chevron-operated gas wells.
"The start-up of the Cutbank J-T Plant and the timely tie-in of
natural gas production illustrates the immediate growth potential
in areas served by TFL and is expected to significantly increase
TFL's throughput volumes from the 138.1 MMcf/d reported from all
five TFL facilities in 1998," said Randy Findlay, president of
TransCanada Gas Processing."
