October 23: Trans Mountain Proposed Expansion Pipeline

Evening presentation on the Kinder Morgan Pipelines on October 23, 2013.

Evening Seminar

The technical meeting following the Committee meeting took place in the Holiday Inn Metrotown conference rooms at 7 pm and was attended by 48 persons. The event was shared with the local chapter of ASME and the topic was titled 'Proposed Transmountain Pipeline' presented by Mr. Adam Lind P.Eng who is a Senior Pipeline Engineer at Kinder Morgan Canada, currently working on the doubling of the 1,150-kilometre 24 Trans Mountain line pipeline between Strathcona County (near Edmonton), Alberta and Burnaby, BC. The proposed expansion, if approved, would create a twinned pipeline that would increase the nominal capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day, to 890,000 barrels per day. The projected capital cost is $5.4 billion for approximately 980 km of new pipeline to be laid within the existing right-of-way corridor where practical, minimizing construction in new areas. The existing line would carry refined products, synthetic crude oils, light crude oils, while the proposed new line would carry heavier oils.

The speaker provided an overview of this significant project which, if approved, is scheduled to be operational in 2017.
