Enbridge is developing the Woodland Pipeline Extension Project to bring additional crude oil transportation capacity into the Edmonton area by 2015. This capacity is needed to meet forecasts of regional oil sands volume targeted for delivery into the Edmonton hub.
This new pipeline will run from Enbridge Athabasca's existing Cheecham Terminal to Enbridge Pipelines Inc.'s existing Edmonton Terminal, effectively extending the Woodland Pipeline which is now in-service. The Project includes:
- Approximately 385-km pipeline with a diameter of up to 914 mm (36 inches) to transport blended bitumen from Cheecham Terminal to Edmonton Terminal.
- One new pump station consisting of four 5,750 HP pump units and related piping and meters to be located at the existing Roundhill Station.
- One new pump station consisting of three 5,750 HP pump units and related piping and meters to be located at the existing Cheecham Terminal.
