What We Do

Natural gas gathering and processing

NorthRiver Midstream operates gas gathering pipelines and processing facilities in British Columbia and Alberta, primarily in the Montney basin.

Natural gas is a term used to describe gas that is formed from the decomposition of organic material buried deep underground. There are different types of natural gas, including:

Wet Gas

Natural gas containing significant heavy hydrocarbons. Propane, butane and other liquid hydrocarbons can be liquefied.

Lean Gas

Lean gas contains mainly methane (typically over 95%) and ethane.

Dry Gas

Gas produced from a well that produces little or no condensate or reservoir liquids.

Sour Gas

Sour gas is natural gas that contains a measurable amount of hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
