On January 21, 2016 Samson Cree Nation Chief Kurt Buffalo and Kinder Morgan President Ian Anderson signed a Mutual Benefits Agreement in support of the Trans-Mountain Expansion Project. This would benefit Samson Cree and its member for the next 20 yrs should the project be approved. Kinder Morgan also held a Contracting and Procurement workshop the following day in order for nation members who own private businesses an opportunity to get on Kinder Morgan’s vendors list for work along the project. The gentlemen also gave insight to some junior high students on what it takes to work along a pipeline. If you would like to know more about the MBA or on getting on Kinder Morgans Vendors List please feel free to come see our Consultation team located in Justice (3rd flr. CTA). The Project:Trans Mountain is proposing an expansion of its current 1,150-kilometre pipeline between Strathcona County (near Edmonton), Alberta and Burnaby, BC. If approved, the proposed expansion would create a twinned pipeline that would increase the nominal capacity of the system from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day.With a projected capital cost of $5.4 billion, the expansion would add approximately 994 km of new pipeline and reactivate 193 km of existing pipeline. To support the expanded pipeline, new facilities would include 12 new pump stations and 20 new tanks added to existing storage terminals in Burnaby (14), Sumas (1) and Edmonton (5).
