Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMEP)
The Trans Mountain Expansion Project (the Project) is a $6.8-billion construction project that will parallel the 1,150-km route of the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline. The Project will add approximately 980 km of new pipeline and reactivate 193 km of existing pipeline.

On November 29, 2016, the Government of Canada granted approval for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. In addition, in May 2016, the National Energy Board concluded the Project is in the Canadian public interest and recommended the Federal Governor in Council approve the expansion. The expanded pipeline is expected to be completed in 2019.

Scheduled maintenance on existing Trans Mountain pipeline right-of-way at North Saskatchewan River crossing – Edmonton, AB
Between August 21 and September 30, 2017 (timeline subject to change), we will be completing scheduled routine maintenance along the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline right-of-way at the North Saskatchewan River crossing located west of Whitemud Drive NW near Fort Edmonton Park in Edmonton, AB. The purpose of this work is to install protective armoured covering over a segment of the existing pipeline that crosses the North Saskatchewan River. The covering will protect and minimize the chance of the pipeline becoming exposed and coming in to contact with potential natural hazards in the river.

This work will occur seven days a week during daytime hours. During this timeframe, the public may notice increased activity, presence of equipment and structures on and near the river, overnight lighting and intermittent construction-type noise near the work site. Temporary infrastructure, including a wharf and docking materials, will be constructed on site and situated along the east bank of the river. Two barges will also be constructed and placed in the river to hold the installation materials. To protect public safety, temporary trail closures near the work site will be put in to effect over the course of this work.

Base Line Terminal
The Base Line Terminal is the second joint venture between Kinder Morgan and Keyera Corporation and will be a crude oil storage terminal facility located at Keyera’s Alberta Enviro Fuels facility in Sherwood Park, Alberta. The $741 million project will include the construction of 12 tanks with a total shell capacity of 763,000 m³ (4.8 million barrels), a pipeline bridge crossing and an overhead pipe rack between the Kinder Morgan North 40 Terminal and Base Line Terminal. The terminal is expected to be placed in service in late 2017.


Baseline Bridge Construction
In May 2017, an overhead pipeline bridge was constructed across Baseline Road between 17 Street and Anthony Henday Drive in Sherwood Park, AB. The bridge will eventually support a number of pipelines that will connect the Kinder Morgan North 40 Terminal and Base Line Terminal facilities.

Edmonton South Rail Terminal
The Edmonton South Rail Terminal, a joint venture with Imperial Oil Limited, was placed in service in 2015. The terminal is a crude oil loading facility that serves North American markets and refineries through direct connections to the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railway networks.

Edmonton Terminal Expansion Project (ETEP)
Between 2012 and 2014, the Edmonton Terminal, located in Sherwood Park, Alberta, underwent a multi-phase expansion. 15 merchant tanks and supporting infrastructure were constructed and placed in service. At present, the terminal contains a total of 35 tanks and has a storage capacity of approximately 1.27 million m³). (8 million barrels) (The expansion validates the terminal's importance in transporting petroleum products to the west coast.

Alberta Crude Terminal
The Alberta Crude Terminal, a joint venture of Kinder Morgan and Keyera Corporation, was placed in service in 2014. Located in Edmonton, Alberta, the terminal has 20 loading spots with a capacity of 40,000 bpd to load and deliver crude oil products to markets and refineries across North America. The facility is served by the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railway networks. In anticipation of increased demand for crude oil loading services, expansion of the terminal is currently under consideration.

Trans Mountain Pump Station Expansion
The Trans Mountain Pump Station Expansion project was successfully completed in 2007. It added 10 new pump stations along the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline system, which increased its capacity by 5,564 m³/d (35,000 bpd).

Anchor Loop Project
The TMX - Anchor Loop Project involved twinning (or looping) a 159-kilometre (99-mile) section of the existing Trans Mountain Pipeline system between Hinton, Alberta, and Hargreaves, British Columbia, and the addition of two new pump stations. The TMPL is already looped with a 30-inch pipe between Darfield and Kamloops, British Columbia, and a 30-inch pipe between Edson and Hinton, Alberta. The project was successfully completed in October 2008, bringing the capacity of the Trans Mountain Pipeline up to 48,000 m³/d (300,000 bpd). More details.
