Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd. announced that it has completed commissioning and start-up of its sour deep-cut gas processing complex, Pipestone Montney.

The Pipestone Gas Plant is designed to process approximately 100 MMcf/day of sour gas and includes an acid gas injection well, salt water disposal well, and pipelines that directly connect to Tidewater’s Pipestone Gas Storage Facility.

“With the start-up of this strategic asset, Tidewater is well positioned in the Grande Prairie area to offer Montney producers natural gas and liquids processing, egress and storage opportunities,”  said Toby McKenna, vice president of business development, Tidewater. “We at Tidewater are grateful to all of our employees, contractors and service providers who diligently worked to build this plant in a safe and environmentally responsible manner.”

The Pipestone Gas Plant is connected to both the Alliance and TC Energy pipeline network in Alberta.


The Pipestone Gas Plant began processing sour gas on September 15, 2019 and is currently processing approximately 30 MMcf/day of sour gas during this start-up phase. Tidewater expects processing to ramp up to at or near full capacity of 100MMcf/day by the end of the year.

Tidewater received approval from the Alberta Energy Regulator to construct and operate the Pipestone Gas Plant in October, 2018 and began constructing this plant shortly thereafter.
