The Proposed Project

International Petroleum Corp. IPC Canada Ltd is proposing to install pipelines to 9 producing oil wells within CFB Suffield, approximately 55 kilometers from Medicine Hat, Alberta. 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 11 kilometers of new right-of-way (ROW) with a width of 15 meters will be required for the installation of the pipelines. The ROWs will be reclaimed once construction is complete and surrendered upon exhaustion of the productive life of the associated wells.
