KAPS is an approximately 560 kilometer dual pipeline system linking Montney and Duvernay production in Western Canada to Keyera’s fractionation and logistics assets in Fort Saskatchewan. KAPS provides a competitive transportation alternative that allows producers to grow their natural gas production in advance of additional LNG in-service both in Western Canada and the U.S. Gulf Coast. The project strengthens the economic viability of Western Canadian LNG facilities, whose product reaches Asian markets with approximately 30 percent reduced shipping emissions relative to U.S. Gulf Coast originated routes.
