Encana has successfully started up its Sunrise processing plant, under budget and more than one month ahead of its original schedule. Sunrise is the second of three processing plants that support Encana’s condensate-focused growth plan in the Montney, Canada.
In parallel with the ramping up of Sunrise and Tower facilities, the third plant, Saturn remains ahead of schedule and is on track to start up before the end of the year. In addition, the Towerbirch lateral pipeline, which connects all three plants to the Nova Gas Transmission Limited (NGTL) system, started up on 1 October.
Encana’s agreement with Veresen Midstream enables Encana, via the Cutbank Ridge Partnership, to construct and operate the Tower, Sunrise and Saturn plants, as well as any future build opportunities, on behalf of Veresen Midstream on a contracted basis.
“Our ability to deliver complex projects ahead of schedule and under budget demonstrates the strength of our execution capabilities,” said Doug Suttles, Encana President and CEO. “The new processing and midstream infrastructure now in place firmly supports our growth plan in the Montney, which is a key driver to expanding our corporate margin and delivering quality returns.”
