Kinder Morgan proposes bitumen pipeline to Kitimat

VANCOUVER, B.C. - In a June 2 story by Vancouver website Tyee, confirmed by Northwest Coast Energy News, Kinder Morgan is proposing a second pipeline to carry bitumen from the Alberta oil sands to the port of Kitimat.

The proposal was part of a presentation to industry analysts during a conference on March 24, with a PDF of the Power Point presentation posted on the Kinder Morgan Web site.

The presentation says the proposed pipeline is one of several alternatives proposed for the expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan Transmountain Pipeline.

The pipeline to Kitimat would branch off from the Transmountain Pipeline go through Prince George and then follow existing pipeline routes to Kitimat and not follow the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway route.
