Union Gas announced the availability of 2 Bcf of peak storage at
the Dawn Market Hub. The storage permits summer 1999 injection and
1999-2000 winter withdrawal. The storage capacity will be awarded
based on a bidding process. All bids are due by 1 p.m. EST on
Friday, May 21. The high bidders will be awarded the capacity by 3
p.m. EST that same day. The storage hub has six pipeline
interconnects and easy access to 15 pipeline and distribution
companies, Union Gas said. The complex has a working capacity of
130 Bcf and can deliver 2 Bcf/d for customers.
Encal Energy Ltd. of Calgary said it received approval from the
Alberta Energy & Utilities Board (AEUB) for construction of the
Wilson Creek Pipeline Project. The pipeline permit was originally
granted Feb. 11 but was suspended pending the results of a further
AEUB hearing. Encal CEO, David Johnson, said construction is
expected to begin as soon as weather conditions permit. The
pipeline will transport gas from Encal's Wilson Creek/Open Creek
project area for delivery to the Gulf operated Rimbey Processing
Facility. The Wilson Creek/Open Creek project represents a key gas
and liquids producing region for Encal. Upon completion of the
pipeline, production net to Encal will increase by 25 MMcfe/d,
bringing total net production from this area to about 40 MMcfe/d.
