CALGARY, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or the "Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA) announced plans today to proceed with an expansion of its existing natural gas liquids ("NGL") infrastructure at a combined capital cost of approximately $1 billion.
"These projects mark the next stage of our growth in the NGL business," said Bob Michaleski, Pembina's Chief Executive Officer. "The projects are all extremely complementary and position us well to offer integrated services across the NGL value chain. With our existing ethane-plus infrastructure and marketing capability, we can offer a competitive, cost-effective solution for incremental ethane-plus production from the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin."
Combined, the Company expects these projects to contribute between $125 and $135 million of long-term, fee-for-service EBITDA per year once fully operational. Pembina also anticipates $10 to $30 million of long-term product margin EBITDA to be generated annually by these expansions. With the addition of these projects, Pembina has increased its 2013 capital spending plan to approximately $1.04 billion from the previously announced budget of $965 million.
