The Trans Mountain Expansion Project Will Nearly Triple its Capacity
09.14.2020 - NEWS

September 14, 2020 [Equipment Journal] – The Trans Mountain Pipeline was established in 1953 to create a reliable energy supply for Canada and the United States.

The initial capacity was 150,000 barrels per day, with four pump stations along the line and a marine loading dock. Since 1953, the pipeline’s capacity has been increased a number of times by twinning parts of the line as well as adding associated facilities. In 2019, Canada approved the Trans Mountain Expansion Project.

The Trans Mountain Expansion is essentially a twinning of the existing 1,150 km pipeline between Strathcona County, Alberta, and Burnaby, British Columbia.

It will create a pipeline system with nominal capacity going from about 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day.

New pipeline

The Expansion Project will construct about 980 km of new pipeline, 193 km of reactivated pipeline, 12 new pump stations, with 19 new tanks added to existing storage terminals in Burnaby, Sumas and Edmonton. Along with new storage terminals, there will be three new berths built at Westridge Marine Terminal.

The existing pipeline will carry refined products, synthetic crude oils and light crude oils with the capability for heavy crude oils. The new pipeline will carry heavier oils with the capability for transporting light crude oils.
