PMC In­tel


Cal­gary-based Plains Mid­stream Canada (PMC) has beefed up from its 130-staff startup in 2001 to 1,300 em­ploy­ees to­day, through its ap­petite for ac­qui­si­tions – di­gest­ing 34 so far.

Its big­gest get was BP’s Cana­dian NGL busi­ness, com­plet­ing PMC’s seam­less mid­stream in­te­gra­tion. PMC is an in­di­rect sub­sidiary of Hous­ton’s Plains All Amer­i­can Pipe­line, and op­er­ates in eight provinces and 45 U.S. states.

PMC owns, op­er­ates, ac­quires and de­vel­ops mid­stream en­ergy as­sets, spe­cial­iz­ing in trans­porta­tion, stor­age, pro­cess­ing and mar­ket­ing ser­vices of crude oil, nat­u­ral gas, and NGLs. It also sep­a­rates NGLs from nat­u­ral gas and frac­tion­ates them into prod­ucts.

Its trans­port net­work plays a key role in Western Canada. Crude oil and dilu­ent flow along 4,700 kms of pipe­line, di­vided into four main sys­tems: Rain­bow and Range­land in Al­berta, and Man­ito and South Saskatchewan in Saskatchewan. PMC also has 24 crude oil truck ter­mi­nals and over 800 leased rail­cars through­out North Amer­ica. To­tal crude oil stor­age ca­pac­ity is over 4.8 mil­lion bar­rels.

Its NGL in­fra­struc­ture in­cludes 28 stor­age fa­cil­i­ties, 19 rail ter­mi­nals and six pipe­line ter­mi­nals, in ad­di­tion to eight frac­tion­a­tion fa­cil­i­ties, four gas strad­dle plants and two gas pro­cess­ing plants.
