Project Details:

OEL provided Project Management and Engineering work for the project’s development, permitting and construction phases, complete through to commissioning the 12” & 16” Pipeline System in Alberta’s Industrial Heartland Association area (AIHA).

The Heartland Pipeline consisted of a pipeline system approximately 47 kilometers long, (including laterals) between the client’s hydrogen plant in Strathcona County and a termination point north of the North Saskatchewan River.
