be shipped or moved by rail across
North America. Both companies are
connected to fractionators in the Fort
Saskatchewan area. Inter Pipeline
processes propane from their offgas
plants located near Fort McMurray,
Alberta. Being closely linked to the
propane reduces both emissions and
transportation costs.

OFFSETTING BUILDING COSTS
McCuaig-Boyd said it was
necessary to provide subsidies to

offset Alberta's higher building costs,
greater distances to market, as well
as incentives offered by competing
jurisdictions.
While the royalties can help offset
some of the extra cost, they likely
won't offset all of it.
"It does cost more to build in
Alberta, but right now, the U.S. has
a lot of activity so construction costs
may be higher, whereas we are slower
in Alberta and have the opposite occurring," said Chappell, who

THE CANADIAN ADVANTAGE
While it may cost more to build in
Alberta, Canada has a distinct advantage over the U.S.
When the polypropylene pellets
are shipped to Asian markets, they
must first cross the Rockies, then
loaded onto a ship. But the distance
to Asian markets from Canada's west
coast is actually a few days shorter
than from the U.S. Gulf Coast, saving
time and money.

noted civil work at Inter Pipeline's
project site is already underway.
"But it is always going to be more
expensive to build in Alberta because
we have to winterize and building in
the winter impacts productivity to
some degree."
Taylor said the downturn in
Alberta's economy has created the
ideal timing to construct large scale
plants. "Back in the $100 per barrel
days for oil, many projects were not
planned and were very expensive to
build. This project is hitting the ideal
time. There is ample skilled labour and
decreased construction costs. We are
hitting the ideal cycle of opportunity
to build."

THE MARKET
Currently, pellets produced by
CKPC and Inter Pipeline will be
shipped to other parts of Canada
and the U.S. Midwest, where there
is high demand and the greatest
return on investment. While the
Asian market is a larger consumer of
plastic pellets and demand is steady,
Chappell said they won't be shipping there because of the current
low pricing. But if that gets flipped
around, he said it will be easy to ship
to Asia.
"Within North America we ship
the pellets in hopper cars, like grain
cars, but when they are transported
overseas, they are shipped in containers. Right now, these containers arrive full from Asia and they
go back empty. So, when the
economics in Asia are more favourable, new infrastructure won't be
required because it's already in
existence."
