Brief Description

  • The Saskatchewan System has four principal assets, the Saskatchewan Gathering System; the Westspur System; the Weyburn System; and the Virden System which include 356 kilometres of trunk line and nearly 1,900 kilometres of crude oil and liquids gathering system pipeline and related terminals and storage facilities
  • Saskatchewan Gathering System
    • The Saskatchewan Gathering System is located in Southeastern Saskatchewan and transports crude oil, from producing fields to the Westspur System.
    • The System consists of approximately 1,600 km of gathering lines ranging in diameters from three inches to ten inches. It also has nine storage tanks with a combined capacity of 36,000 barrels.
    • The capacity of the Saskatchewan Gathering System is approximately 255,000 bpd.
  • Westspur System
    • The Westspur System is a trunkline system located in Southeastern Saskatchewan that transports crude oil received from gathering systems and from truck shipments, and natural gas liquids received from the Steelman gas processing plant. The crude oil and natural gas liquids are transported via the Westspur System to Cromer, Manitoba and from there to Eastern Canada and the United States via connecting pipeline systems
    • The Westspur System consists of approximately 357 km of 12 and 16-inch trunk line and approximately 100 km of gathering lines ranging in diameters from four inches to eight inches.
