Our Gathering & Processing (G&P) highlights

We gather and process raw natural gas, providing an essential service for our customers and essential products for society.

Overview

We have an extensive network of over 4,400 kilometres of pipelines and 14 natural gas processing plants.

These assets are located in some of the most prospective, gas prone areas of the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. 

Natural gas from producers' wells is transported to our gathering pipelines for delivery to our processing plants, where impurities are removed and valuable products are separated from the raw gas stream. The natural gas stream that results is consumer quality and is used throughout Canada.

We offer flexible services tailored to producer needs. Many of our plants can process both sweet and sour gas and contain processes that extract valuable natural gas liquids out of the raw gas stream. We also provide condensate handling services through our condensate gathering pipelines and stabilization facilities.

Where we're located

Our G&P business is strategically located on liquids-rich basins in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin.
