NEBC Connector

NEBC Connector Project

NorthRiver Midstream Inc. is proposing to construct and operate the NEBC Connector to connect British Columbia’s Montney Resource to downstream markets.

The NEBC Connector consists of two parallel small diameter pipelines (between 8”-12”) and approximately 213 km in length. Of the approximately 213 km, 190 km will be in British Columbia and the remaining 23 km will be in Alberta.

It is anticipated that the pipelines will transport condensate (C5+) and natural gas liquids (NGL) (C3+) from NorthRiver Midstream Inc.’s Highway Liquids Hub, northwest of Wonowon, B.C., to the Gordondale area of Alberta.
