Industrial Info is tracking more than $231 billion in active Oil & Gas Production projects in Canada, including more than $33 billion worth that are set to begin construction before the end of the year. Industrial Info also is tracking more than $40 billion in active Pipeline projects in Canada, including about $16 billion worth that are set to begin construction before the end of the year.

Many of these projects are in their planning stages, where plenty of factors still could increase, decrease or totally eliminate the expected spending. But among the production projects scheduled to kick off are two in British Columbia:

  • Canadian Natural Resources Limited's third-train addition to the West Stoddart Sour Natural Gas Processing Plant near Fort Saint John, which is expected to produce 7,500 barrels per day (BBL/d) of natural gas liquids (NGL)
  • ConocoPhillips' Blueberry Natural Gas Processing Plant in Fort Nelson, which is expected to produce 3,000 BBL/d of mixed natural gas liquids (NGL)

British Columbia also is home to two pipeline projects set to kick off before the end of the year:

  • Enbridge Incorporated's 525-mile segment of the Westcoast Connector Pipeline Project, which would transport up to 4.2 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from near Fort Saint John to a planned LNG liquefaction facility
  • TransCanada Corporation's 161-mile segment of the Merrick Mainline Pipeline Project, which would transport up to 1.9 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas from near Dawson Creek to a station near Summit Lake

Not surprisingly, about 85% of the Canadian Oil & Gas Production Industry’s $231 billion-plus total investment value (TIV) is attributed to projects in British Columbia and Alberta, which traditionally have been top destinations for exploration and production companies. Among the $33 billion-plus set to kick off before the end of the year, the two provinces are home to 84% of the TIV.

About 83% of the Canadian Pipeline Industry’s $40 billion-plus TIV is attributed to projects in British Columbia and Alberta, where takeaway capacity is in high demand. Among the $16 billion set to kick off before the end of the year, the two provinces are home to more than 89% of the TIV.
