Encana starts up second Montney plant ahead of schedule, under budget
CALGARY, Alberta — Encana successfully started up the Sunrise processing plant on Sept. 27, under budget and more than one month ahead of original schedule. Sunrise is the second of three processing plants that support Encana’s condensate-focused growth plan in the Montney.

In parallel with the Sunrise and Tower facilities ramping up, the third plant, Saturn remains ahead of schedule and is on track to start up before year-end. In addition, the Towerbirch lateral pipeline which connects all three plants to the NGTL system started up on October 1.
Encana’s midstream agreement with Veresen Midstream enables Encana, via the Cutbank Ridge Partnership, to construct and operate the Tower, Sunrise and Saturn plants, as well as any future build opportunities, on behalf of Veresen Midstream on a contracted basis. Veresen Midstream funds and owns the facilities and Encana pays to use them through a fee-for-service agreement.
In the business of hydrocarbon production, accurate accounting of produced fluids and gases is critical from a process control, management and fiscal perspective.
The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
