Horizon Pipeline Capacity Expansion

Expanding and increasing production at the Horizon Oil Sands site

Pembina Pipeline Corporation | Canada | 2015-2016

Pipeline capacities up to 250,000 bbl/d
Six different pump stations and terminals
Maintained pipeline throughput during construction

Challenges

  • Each of the sites presented unique engineering challenges to achieve the design goals.
  • Maintaining pipeline throughput during construction required extensive planning between Pembina’s project management, construction management, pipeline operations teams, the construction contractors, and Hatch.

Solutions

  • To meet the demanding in-service date, we approached the work with a “divide-and-conquer” philosophy.
  • Hatch's project manager oversaw all aspects of the project and managed three project engineers, who were each assigned two to three sites.

Highlights

  • Hatch’s engineering team provided a quality design while meeting the aggressive project schedule and maintaining pipeline throughput during construction.
  • This project was successfully completed on time and on budget.
