In 2019, we engaged with the community through a series of workshops, events in your neighbourhood and an open house in June. During these events we provided information about the Renewable Natural Gas and Pipe Rack projects. Please see the following updates regarding these projects.
Renewable natural gas
The Renewable Natural Gas (RNG) project will allow EPCOR to capture a byproduct called biogas, which is otherwise used for process and plant heating or flared at the plant, upgrade it and transform it into renewable natural gas. This will reduce flaring, greenhouse gas emissions, and noise at the facility. Regulatory approvals for the RNG project (as shown on the image below) were granted in the fall of 2020.
We plan to initiate construction in spring 2021; the majority of construction will occur this year. The buried injection line shown in yellow below is underground and no trees will be removed outside of the fenceline to accommodate this project. Limited tree removal may be required inside our fenceline and revegetation will occur in alignment with our Landscaping Master Plan.
We originally notified the Community about the Renewable Natural Gas Project in 2019 through workshops, newsletters and our open house. Find out
more about this project.
Pipe rack project
The above-ground pipe rack project was completed in 2020. There were no changes to the scope or design details associated with the
project. Revegetation will align with the recommendations included in our
