Pipeline Operations

Taking Care Along The Pipelines We Operate

Pipelines are essential to NOVA Chemicals’ operations. They transport the feedstocks used in the manufacturing processes at our world-scale petrochemical facilities, they move our products to our customers, and they integrate our facilities with local industries.

We invite you to take a closer look at our pipeline operations — particularly the care we take along these systems to ensure the safety of our neighbours, our communities and the environment. We have a consistent record of safe, responsible pipeline operations.

The following four documents comprise the guidance for applying for written consent to construct a facility on, along, across or under a NOVA Chemicals pipeline and for persons planning to engage in an activity causing a ground disturbance:

Projects & Events
Corunna Second Feed System – Kimball Pipeline Replacement Project
A second pipeline for ethane feedstock will give the Corunna facility diversity of supply and transportation. Access to the Utica Shale Basin will be through a series of connected pipelines including Kinder Morgan’s UTOPIA pipeline, Plains’ Windsor-Sarnia pipeline and NOVA Chemicals’ Kimball pipeline. NOVA Chemicals received Ontario Energy Board approval for Kimball Pipeline Replacement Project in October 2015. Construction was completed in 2017. This connectivity is expected to be in service by 2018, subject to remaining regulatory approvals. Funding for this project is part of the approximately $400 million approved funding for the Corunna All Ethane Conversion.
