  • Alberta

Inter Pipeline was excited to sit down with Invest Alberta to share how proud we are of our Heartland Petrochemical Complex (HPC) and what it represents for Alberta and beyond.

David Chappell, Senior Vice President, Petrochemical Development, and Ashley Marr, Director, Heartland Petrochemical Complex Business Readiness were excited to discuss the economic benefits HPC will bring to Alberta, the Complex’s commitment to sustainable practices and the pride they both feel for being a part of this historic build.

Creating Value with HPC

The Heartland story writes a new chapter in forward-thinking industrial evolution at a pivotal moment in Alberta’s history as a resource-driven engine for the country.

The Heartland Petrochemical Complex, located in Strathcona County, northeast of Edmonton, Alberta, is designed to convert locally sourced, low-cost propane into 525,000 tonnes per year of polypropylene, an easily transported plastic used in the manufacturing of a wide range of finished products.

This multi-billion-dollar project will materially diversify and strengthen Inter Pipeline’s existing large-scale natural gas liquids processing business, while creating an attractive new market for propane feedstock, creating thousands of jobs and driving a new era of investment and deliberate sustainability in Canada.

The Heartland Petrochemical Complex signals a bold and bright new era for ‘Made in Canada’ economic diversification, deliberate sustainability and responsible resource development. When HPC becomes fully operational, it will be North America’s first integrated propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene production facility and will help meet growing global demand for PP – demand that is only expected to increase.
