Propane: A Game Changer for Canada

R

ight now, propane is an investment opportunity and it is creating some significant "firsts"
for Canada.
Take propane and plastic, for
example. Rarely a day goes by without
encountering items made of plastic.
We see it all around us, in everything
from shampoo bottles and dentures to
toys, yogurt containers, cell phones,
and automobiles...the list is extensive.
Canada is fortunate that we have
significant amounts of propane - a
natural raw material with many useful
applications, including manufacturing.
But we only use about 40 per cent of
the propane we produce, sending the
majority to the U.S. where, in addition
to home heating and industrial applications, they create added value by
turning it into polypropylene pellets,
an important feedstock for plastic
products, and then ship it back to us.
Alberta's Petrochemical Diversification program has the potential

to return that value to Canada. The
two petrochemical facilities proposed
by Inter Pipeline and Canada Kuwait
Petrochemical Corporation in central Alberta are game changers for
Canada. These facilities will not only
create value by establishing a new
petrochemical supply stream for
our propane, but they could eventually lure a plastics manufacturer to
Alberta. The potential from spin-off
industries is substantial.
Propane can also be a game changer
for the automotive sector. Addressing
climate change is on every government agenda and auto propane can
play a significant role in reducing
greenhouse gas emissions produced
by the transportation sector.
It is the most popular alternative fuel across the world and it is
the most compelling option that
is ready to go today. We are seeing more organizations switching
to auto propane, including school

districts across Canada who are
making the switch to reduce their
transportation costs and provide a
cleaner environment for students and
communities.
The opportunity to make propane
even greener is on the horizon with the
development of bio propane. Made
from renewable sources, it reduces
the carbon footprint, decreases
greenhouse gas emissions by up to
80 per cent, and it is highly portable
and versatile. Neste Oil, a refining and
marketing company located in Espoo,
Finland, specializes in lower-emission
traffic fuels. It is expected to open
a renewable propane facility in
Rotterdam, the Netherlands, this year,
with its bio propane sold to European
customers.
The possibilities are endless, with the
impact of propane benefiting our lives
every day. Projects built on propane
will greatly benefit our communities,
economy and bring significant value
to all Canadians. Propane is a game
changer for Canada and is driving our
country forward.
In the next edition of Energized, the
CPA will be catching up with AltaGas
to get an update on their propane
export terminal currently under construction, as well as with Pembina
who is also looking to construct a
propane export terminal on Canada's
west coast. AltaGas's terminal will be
the first in Canada and another game
changer for our country. The U.S. is
reaping the benefit of exporting a
large percentage of their propane
to the Asian market but now Canada
can get into the game. The AsiaPacific basin is one of the world's
largest and fastest growing energy
consuming regions; it is a crucial time
for Canada to ramp up our efforts
and investment.
