Rangeland Midstream Canada, Ltd. (”Rangeland Canada”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Rangeland Energy III LLC, today announced it has commenced the construction of its Marten Hills Pipeline System. The system consists of new crude oil and condensate pipelines located in the Marten Hills region of north central Alberta. The Marten Hills Pipeline System will extend approximately 85 kilometres (52.8 miles), terminating at an interconnect with Plains Midstream Canada’s Rainbow Pipeline System, which serves the Edmonton, Alberta, hub and refining market (system map here). The Marten Hills system is expected to come into service in the second quarter of 2020.
The system is anchored by long-term transportation agreements with three of the region’s largest crude oil producers, who have made a combined minimum volume commitment representing 40 percent of the system’s capacity. The agreements span a 450,000-acre area of mutual interest (AMI) dedicated to the Marten Hills system.
“Rangeland Canada is excited to announce that we have received all of the required permits and regulatory approvals that allow us to begin clearing rights of way in advance of pipeline construction, which is expected to begin later this month,” said Rangeland Canada Vice President of Business Development Briton Speer. “The Marten Hills system will alleviate infrastructure bottlenecks and allow us to provide our customers with flow assurance and the safe, high-quality transportation services they need to access the best markets.”
