Building Canada's first integrated petrochemical complex

Visit our Construction Updates and Videos section to learn more about the latest at the Heartland Petrochemical Complex. 

The Heartland Petrochemical Complex is designed to convert locally sourced, low-cost propane into 525,000 tonnes per year of polypropylene, a high value, easy to transport plastic used in the manufacturing of a wide range of finished products. Construction of the complex began in early 2018 with completion scheduled for late 2021. Consisting of a propane dehydrogenation (PDH) and a polypropylene (PP) facility, the Heartland Petrochemical Complex will cost approximately $3.5 billion and is located in Strathcona County, Alberta.

Creating Value - Heartland Petrochemical Complex

The Heartland Petrochemical Complex represents the largest organic growth project in our history, and a key part of our growth strategy.


The Heartland Petrochemical Complex's two main facilities:

PDH Facility Overview

The PDH facility will be designed to convert approximately 22,000 barrels per day of propane into 525,000 tonnes per year of polymer grade propylene. Propane feedstock for the PDH plant will be sourced from Inter Pipeline’s Redwater Olefinic Fractionator as well as several other third party fractionators in the region.

Detailed engineering for the plant was awarded to Fluor Corporation in 2013. Inter Pipeline has also completed early civil work at the site in preparation for facility construction activities in early 2018.


PP Facility Overview

The integrated PP facility will utilize propylene from the PDH plant to produce 525,000 tonnes of polypropylene per year. Linde Engineering was awarded the front end engineering design contract for this facility in 2017. Construction of this component of the complex is began in the second half of 2018.
