Pembina Pipeline Corporation Announces Open Season for Pipeline Expansions

Expansion project build on Pembina's existing infrastructure to provide cost-effective, timely solution to meet industry infrastructure demand in northwest Alberta.

(All financial figures are approximate and in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.)

CALGARY, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA) is conducting an open season to determine industry interest in a future expansion of its crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids ("NGL") pipelines in northwest Alberta (the "Expansion Project").  Should Pembina proceed with the Expansion Project, the resulting services and facilities are expected to be in-service following the completion of the recently announced Phase II expansions, subject to regulatory and environmental approvals.

The Expansion Project would evaluate increasing throughput capacity on Pembina's pipeline systems in northwest Alberta. Interested parties will have the opportunity to submit non-binding nominations for all, any one, or any other combination of the commodities currently transported by Pembina (including, high sulphur crude, sweet crude, condensate, propane plus and ethane plus) at existing and potential future receipt points on the Peace, Northern and Swan Hills pipeline systems.

"Increased production from the Duvernay, Cretaceous, Montney, Deep Basin and Swan Hills areas has resulted in significant demand for additional transportation services in Alberta" said Mick Dilger, President and Chief Operating Officer "The additional pipeline capacity would allow industry to access the markets on a competitive and cost-effective basis."

Oil and gas producers continue to deploy advanced technologies to unlock significant liquids-rich natural gas reserves in the areas served by Pembina's infrastructure. Over the past several years, demand for throughput on the Company's pipelines in northwest Alberta has increased. Pembina's recent announcements include two separate expansions designed to significantly increase NGL and crude oil/condensate throughput capacity on its Peace and Northern Pipeline Systems by an additional 200,000 bpd, which demonstrates Pembina's commitment to delivering on the services industry requires. As production climbs near Pembina's infrastructure, demand for the above-mentioned projects is anticipated to outpace these capacity increases, creating the potential need for additional transportation services complementary to those projects already announced.

In order to participate in the open season, parties must have executed and delivered a confidentiality agreement and non-binding nominations to Pembina by April 30, 2013 at 5:00pm MT.  For additional information on the open season, visit www.pembina.com.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
