Two Lakes Sour Gas Processing Facility

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has received Oil and Gas Conservation Act (OGCA) application 1914617 and Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) application 001-422581 from Pembina Gas Services Ltd., a subsidiary of Pembina Pipeline Corporation, for approval of its Two Lakes Sour Gas Processing Facility. The AER is reviewing the applications together with the associated environmental impact assessment (EIA) report.

This notice also sets out the deadline for filing statements of concern on the applications. For the filing date, see the section below on how to file a statement of concern.

Description of the Applications
Pembina Gas Services Ltd. has applied under OGCA and EPEA to construct, operate, and reclaim the Two Lakes Sour Gas Processing Facility, which would process about 5 million cubic metres per day of raw sour inlet gas containing up to 8 per cent of hydrogen sulphide (H2S). The facility would take in sour gas from wells in the surrounding area to produce sales gas (methane), natural gas liquids (NGLs; used to make ethane, propane, and butane), and condensate. The project will also produce liquid sulphur from recovered H2S.

The project would include the following components: a raw gas hydrocarbon liquids inlet; a produced water separation and handling processing unit; an amine sweetening unit; a gas processing and NGL recovery unit; a sulphur recovery unit; a condensate stabilization processing unit; and a natural gas compressor.

The project would be located on Crown land in the Municipal District of Greenview No. 16 in Legal Subdivision 5, Section 16, Township 68, Range 9, West of the 6th Meridian, about 45 kilometres southwest of Grande Prairie.

Pembina has also submitted an EIA report, which is part of the applications to the AER.
