Prince George NGL Recovery Plant

West Coast Olefins Ltd. (WCOL) is developing a project to recover ethane and other natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the Enbridge Westcoast Energy Pipeline that runs just east of Prince George, BC. The recovered ethane will then be used as the primary feedstock to an Ethylene Plant. Recovered propane, butane and condensates will be sold to local and Asian buyers.

About This Project

The NGL Recovery Plant will process rich natural gas from Enbridge’s Westcoast Pipeline, removing a mixture of NGLs (ethane, propane, butane and natural gas condensates), which would otherwise be burned and wasted. The Plant will return a leaner and cleaner-burning natural gas to the pipeline. NGL products will be separated and sold, adding value to under-utilized resources.

The West Coast Olefins NGL Recovery Project is entering the BC Oil and Gas Commission (BCOGC) Facility Application process, as required by the Oil and Gas Activity Act. WCOL will continue to work closely with the BCOGC and appropriate regulatory bodies to ensure the Project meets all environmental requirements.
