*Pembinaは同社のウエストコースト・プロパン輸出ターミナル・プロジェクト実現のために米国オレゴン州ポートランド港湾局と協定を締結

Pembina Pipeline Corporation(Pembinaまたは同社)(TSX: PPL、NYSE: PBA)は、同社計画のウエストコースト・プロパン輸出ターミナル・プロジェクト(ウエストコースト・ターミナルないしは同プロジェクト)のサイトを選択したと発表した。8月28日、Pembinaは米国オレゴン州ポートランド港湾局(同港湾局)と同プロジェクト開発のためにターミナル・サイトを規定する協定(ターミナル協定)を締結した。ターミナル・サイトはポートランド市内にある既存の海洋バースを含んでいる。ターミナル協定はウエストコースト・ターミナルのための機材商用リース条件も規定している。

最も重要なことは、ターミナル協定によってPembinaが同プロジェクトの近隣住民、ポートランド市および市・州・連邦政府のその他の利害関係者、さらに環境・規制当局と交渉、相談するプロセスを開始できることである。

ターミナル協定によると、Pembinaは引き続き、具体的なエンジニアリング作業を進め、広範な環境および規制関連の調査とアセスメントを行い、同港湾局とともにウエストコースト・ターミナル開発にとって必要なすべての許可および承認を取得するプロセスを開始する。

Pembinaのミック・ディルガー社長兼最高経営責任者(CEO)は「ターミナル協定に調印したことは同プロジェクトにとって極めて大きな節目である。これによって、利害関係者、政府、環境・規制当局との相談、交渉を開始できる。当社が操業するコミュニティーとの信頼を築くことはPembinaにとっては最優先事項であり、過去60年以上にわたり当社は誠実、透明性に加え当社の利害関係者を丁寧に遇するとの評判を確立してきた。関係者と現在進めている対話は当社がなさねばならないものであり、あらゆる開発プロセスで最も重要なことである。われわれは同プロジェクトの近隣住民との話し合いに期待している」と語った。

Pembinaは当初、約5億米ドルの資本投資を行い日量3万7000バレルのプロパン輸出施設を建設し、2018年初めに稼働させる予定。同社はウエストコースト・ターミナルが大規模な国際市場へのアクセスを持つ(カナダ西部で生産される天然ガスから抽出される)豊富なカナダ・プロパン供給を提供するとともに、天然ガスから抽出される製品向けに拡大するPembinaの総合サービスを補完する。

Pembinaのアンドルー・グルスゼッキ副社長(事業開発担当)は「Pembinaのウエストコースト・ターミナル開発での同港湾局との共同作業は極めて建設的であった。同港湾局が高度な知識、仕事倫理、優れた組織・運営を備えていることをうれしく思う。Pembinaはターミナル協定に基づき同プロジェクトを進展させ、ポートランド地域への当社の大幅な投資計画を実現するつもりである。ターミナル協定によって、当社は関係者にとって素晴らしいチャンスと、顧客には市場ソリューションを提供することが可能となる。ポートランドの人々と短期・長期の投資および雇用機会について協力できることを大変うれしく思う」と語った。

この港湾は、コロンビア川とウィラミット川に沿ったポートランド市内にある。コロンビア川は約180キロ下流にある太平洋までの深水アクセスを提供する。港湾には、Pembinaのプロジェクトに伴う貯蔵・パイプ・レール施設の設置と海洋インフラストラクチャーに利用可能な土地がある。

ポートランド港湾局エグゼクティブディレクターのビル・ワイアット氏は「この港湾はこれまでもカナダの輸出入にとって実績がある玄関口であり、Pembinaが提供する安全に対する高度なレベルの経験、専門技術、コミットメントに感心した。この選択は極めて適切なものであり、われわれは同プロジェクトがポートランドで実現するために全力を尽くすつもりである」と語った。

Pembinaは、責任あるオペレーターであることは人間と環境の健康および安全を守ることにコミットすることであると考えている。同社のSafety, Environment and Security(SES)管理システムはPembinaの成功の要であり、Pembinaの企業文化に深く根ざしている。Pembinaは、定期安全会議、広範なコントラクター適格審査、厳格なプロジェクト検査、潜在的危険の点検を通じて日常業務における優秀なSESを達成するための努力を強化しており、同社の設備および業務が業界の最良慣行を満たし、それを上回ることを確実なものにしている。Pembinaはポートランド港湾局、その他すべての利害関係者と協力して、同プロジェクトが安全かつ市・州・連邦政府の規定に従って建設され運営されることを保証する。

ターミナル協定の条項によると、同プロジェクトは、Pembinaと同港湾局との最終合意の締結、同プロジェクト開発に必要なすべての環境・規制の許可・承認の受け取りを前提にしている。

Pembina Chooses Portland, Oregon for New West Coast Propane Export Terminal

PR57738

CALGARY, Alberta, Sept. 2, 2014 /PRN=KYODO JBN/ —

  – Pembina enters into agreement with the Port of Portland, Oregon to enable
     the development of Pembina’s planned West Coast propane export terminal
                                 project

Pembina Pipeline Corporation ("Pembina" or "the Company") (TSX: PPL; NYSE: PBA)
is pleased to announce that it has selected the site for the Company’s planned
West Coast propane export terminal project (the "West Coast Terminal" or the
"Project"). On August 28, 2014, Pembina entered into an agreement (the
"Terminal Agreement") with the Port of Portland, Oregon (the "Port") that sets
forth the terminal site, which includes an existing marine berth, located
within the city of Portland for the development of the Project. The Terminal
Agreement also outlines the material commercial lease terms for the West Coast
Terminal.

Most importantly, the Terminal Agreement now enables Pembina to begin the
process of engaging and consulting with the neighbours of the Project and other
stakeholders within the city of Portland, municipal, state and federal
governments, and all applicable environmental and regulatory authorities.

Under the Terminal Agreement, Pembina will continue to progress detailed
engineering work, undertake extensive environmental and regulatory reviews and
assessments and, together with the Port, begin the process to obtain all the
required permits and approvals for the development of the West Coast Terminal.

"Signing the Terminal Agreement is a tremendous milestone for the Project,"
said Mick Dilger, Pembina’s President and Chief Executive Officer. "It marks
the beginning of consulting and engaging with stakeholders, governments and the
environmental and regulatory authorities. Building trust with the communities
where we operate is a top priority for Pembina and over the last 60 years, we
have developed a reputation for honesty, transparency and treating our
stakeholders with respect. Ongoing dialogue with our stakeholders is an
integral part of what we do and is the most important step in any development
process. We are looking forward to our conversations with the neighbours of the
Project."

Pembina intends to initially develop a 37,000 barrel per day propane export
facility for an expected capital investment of approximately US$500 million and
with an anticipated in-service date of early-2018. The Company expects that the
West Coast Terminal will provide growing Canadian propane supply (that is
derived from natural gas produced in Western Canada) with access to large,
international markets while complementing Pembina’s expanding integrated
service offering for products that are derived from natural gas.

"Working with the Port toward development of Pembina’s West Coast Terminal has
been very positive," said Andrew Gruszecki, Pembina’s Vice President of
Business Development. "We are pleased by the Port’s sophistication, work ethic
and excellent facilities and operations. Pembina is eager to progress the
Project under the terms of the Terminal Agreement to bring our plans for a
significant investment in the Portland area to fruition, allowing us to provide
an exciting opportunity for our shareholders and a market solution for our
customers. We are excited to work with the people of Portland on investment and
employment opportunities for the near and long-term."

The Port is located in the city of Portland along the Columbia and Willamette
rivers. The Columbia River provides deep water access to the Pacific Ocean,
which is approximately 180 kilometers downstream. The Port has lands available
for the installation of storage, piping and rail facilities and marine
infrastructure associated with Pembina’s Project.

"Our Port is already a proven gateway for Canadian exports and imports, and I
am impressed by the level of experience, expertise and commitment to safety
that Pembina brings to the table," says Bill Wyatt, Executive Director of the
Port of Portland. "This will be an excellent fit, and we are fully committed to
make the Project a reality in Portland."

Pembina believes being a responsible operator means being committed to
protecting the health and safety of people and the environment. The Company’s
Safety, Environment and Security ("SES") management system is a cornerstone of
Pembina’s success and is deeply embedded in its corporate culture. Pembina
reinforces its dedication to excellence in SES in its daily operations through
regular safety meetings, extensive contractor screening, rigorous project
inspection, review of potential hazards, and ensuring the Company’s assets and
practices meet or exceed industry best practices. Pembina will work with the
Port of Portland and all other stakeholders to ensure the Project is
constructed and operated safely and in accordance with all municipal, state and
federal regulations.

Under the terms of the Terminal Agreement, the Project is subject to Pembina
and the Port entering into definitive agreements, and the receipt of all
environmental and regulatory permits and approvals necessary for the
development of the Project.

obtain Project sanctioning, Pembina’s due diligence revealing the Project to be
not economically or commercially feasible, the inability to secure third-party,
regulatory, environmental or governmental approvals in a timely manner, or at
all, changes to the market for propane or supply sources. Failure to so obtain
such approvals, or the failure to otherwise satisfy the conditions to the
Project, may result in the Project not being completed on the proposed terms,
or at all.

None of the forward-looking statements described above are guarantees of future
performance and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and
uncertainties, including, but not limited to: the failure to realize the
