CALGARY, May 3, 2019 /CNW/ – Plains Midstream Canada (PMC) today announced that it is constructing a new 50,000 barrel per day crude oil terminal in Mitsue, Alberta, on its Rainbow Pipeline system, supported by long-term commitments from area producers.
The Mitsue Terminal leverages PMC’s existing Rainbow crude oil and RPII diluent pipeline systems and is designed to provide reliable pipeline takeaway capacity for growing production from the Clearwater play of the Marten Hills area. The Mitsue Terminal connects Rangeland Midstream Canada’s new crude oil gathering and diluent distribution system to PMC’s Rainbow pipeline providing access to the Edmonton markets. The terminal is designed for expansion to accommodate additional potential production growth.
“We are pleased to work with Rangeland Midstream Canada and area producers on this project, which aligns directly with our long-term strategy of meeting customer needs through efficient and innovative solutions,” said Tyler Rimbey, Executive Vice President, Commercial, PMC. “We look forward to continuing to leverage our strong asset footprint to provide additional flexibility and optionality for customers.”
Subject to receipt of the necessary permits and regulatory approvals, construction is anticipated to commence in the second quarter of 2019, with a targeted in-service date in the second quarter of 2020.
