The Keystone Pipeline is a “bullet” pipeline – stretching 3,460-kilometres from Alberta to Illinois and Oklahoma without any intermittent supply or receipt points. At Stantec, we’re proud to have been part of its development. Connecting TransCanada to its markets. Connecting North Americans with energy.
We started this project in 2005 and are still working on it today. Stantec’s pipeline experts provided direct input to regulatory, project management, engineering, and environmental services for the Canadian portion of the project, and supported many other project groups required to successfully put the pipeline system into service. Beginning in Hardisty, Alberta, we guided the Canadian portion of the Keystone pipeline that runs east into Manitoba, turns south and crosses the border in North Dakota.
Our team handled the design and installation of 375 km of new NPS 30 pipeline and the conversion 864 kilometres of existing NPS 34 pipeline from natural gas to crude service. We followed this up with a similar program for the Keystone Expansion Project, which included 550 kilometres of new NPS 36 pipeline from Hardisty to Monchy, Saskatchewan.
