Long-Term Montney Gas Processing Agreement Fills SemCAMS' Wapiti Gas Plant


CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SemCAMS, a subsidiary of SemGroup® Corporation (NYSE:SEMG), today announced that it has executed a long-term agreement with the Canadian subsidiary of a large international oil and gas company to process sour gas production at its Wapiti Gas Plant. The take-or-pay agreement secures 70 mmcf per day of Montney gas for a 10-year term. The 200 mmcf per day Wapiti Gas Plant, which is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2019, is now 95 percent contracted.

"We are pleased to secure this long-term processing agreement that effectively fills SemCAMS Wapiti Gas Plant and helps ensure the plant will operate in the most efficient and cost effective manner," said Dave Gosse, SemCAMS' Vice President and General Manager. "This agreement underscores the need for our Wapiti Gas Plant and the unique services we are able to offer customers with our existing pipelines and sour gas processing plants. With the Wapiti plant essentially fully contracted, we are increasing our focus on the Pipestone area development and look forward to continuing our work with producers and the community to safely and efficiently develop the Montney formation."

In the fall, SemCAMS received Alberta Energy Regulator approval to construct a 280 mmcf per day sour gas plant in the Pipestone area. The new plant will be connected to the Wapiti Gas Plant via the Pipestone pipeline, which is currently under construction and is expected to begin gathering gas from the Pipestone area in the fourth quarter of 2019. The pipeline is designed to provide operational synergies and efficiencies to both the Wapiti plant and the Pipestone plant through SemCAMS integrated pipeline and gas plant system.
