Bad Weather Makes for Cautious Travel
Highway travellers met with blizzard conditions and poor visibility in the area recently (above on Highway 13 as two trucks go past each other).

Extreme temperatures of minus 30 degrees Celsius and the winds meant wind chills approaching -45 degrees Celsius. ©Provost News Photos.
Gibson, Enbridge Busy With Oil Projects in M.D.
. . . With 2nd Terminals, Pipelines
Big oil-related projects are both underway and are being planned on land inside the western boundary of the M.D. of Provost 52.

One project is a $400 million Enbridge Pipelines Inc. terminal now in construction while plans are being finalized for a new Gibson Energy Ltd. terminal that has yet to have final costs attached.

Two world-scale pipelines, one called the Clipper and the other Keystone will send more Alberta crude flowing into U.S.A. markets while an extension to an existing line is also planned for development beginning on land nearby.

Gibson Energy Ltd. is making final plans to create its second crude oil terminal near an existing one. An open house will be held on Thursday, February 7 in the Hardisty Community Hall.

A senior project manager with Gibson Energy’s engineering services group, Steve Corti told The News that construction will be west of the existing Gibson terminal, just across a road and north of Enbridge Pipelines Inc.’s existing terminal.

The cost of the project is a “moving target right now” he says, noting only that it will be in the millions of dollars and that the land used for four storage new tanks will be under 100 acres.

The project will be approximately 50 percent of the size of the existing petroleum terminal.
