SemCAMS says it has completed construction and commissioning of a new 200 mmcf/d gas plant in Alberta’s Montney play.

The Wapiti Gas Plant is now fully operational, the company said on Tuesday.

Construction on the new facility began in 2017. It began processing raw sour gas and sending the sales gas to market on January 27, 2019, more than two months ahead of the original April 1, 2019 target, the company said, adding that construction cots came in on budget.

The plant is 95 percent contracted, SemCAMS said, without revealing the names of its customers.

The Wapiti Gas Plant has a full collection of midstream services including compression, sour gas sweetening, liquid recovery and condensate stabilization.

The plant is currently connected to Nova Gas Transmission Ltd. Pipeline to transport sales gas to market, and an additional sales gas connection to the Alliance Pipeline is expected to be complete in April.

It is also interconnected into the other gas plants in the SemCAMS network via the Wapiti/Simonette Pipeline Systems, providing additional operational synergies to producers, the company said.
