Plains Midstream Now Expanding Formerly Leaked Pipeline

Years after two large oil spills and a $1.3 million fine, Plains Midstream Canada has recently announced plans to expand its Rangeland crude oil pipeline that spreads from Edmonton, Alberta to the U.S. Border.

Plains Midstream Canada’s plans include doubling capacity between Edmonton and Sundre to 100,000 bpd and increasing their system that starts in Sundre and continues south to the border from 20,000 bpd to 100,000. These expansions will be subject to acquiring permits and regulatory approvals and are set to begin minor services later in 2019 and full services in 2021. The new expansions should connect to projects in Montana and Wyoming and eventually deliver crude Canadian oil to Texas.

Plains Midstream's website states that the company has spent $110 million on environmental cleanup efforts for both of their oil spills in 2011 and 2012.
