The Proposed Project

International Petroleum Corp. IPC Canada Ltd is proposing to install pipelines to 4 producing oil wells within Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Suffield, approximately 55 kilometers from Medicine Hat, AB. All wells are currently producing to single well batteries (SWB). Installing pipelines will increase the efficiency of operations by eliminating trucking and product transfer, while reducing emissions. Approximately 5 kilometers of new right-of-way (ROW) with a width of 15 meters will be required for the installation of the pipelines. The ROW's will be reclaimed once construction is complete and surrendered upon exhaustion of the productive life of the associated wells.
