Compression Facility

Planning, Design, Tendering, Construction Supervision and Project Management


WSP was engaged to design a compression facility that would be the largest underground storage facility in Canada - with 156 billion cubic feet of high deliverability storage. To serve an increased need and a growing demand for clean, affordable natural gas, the client needed to add an additional compressor facility at the site of its existing compressor station.

The facility had to be designed and constructed to meet the stringent requirements and regional codes, the Canadian Standards Association and Ontario Technical Standards and Safety Authority. The project team:

  • Leveraged its extensive experience with engineering natural gas compression and storage, as well as the regulatory process involved.
  • Designed, managed and oversaw the installation of a gas-turbine-driven tandem compressor package as well as several other small piping interconnection projects throughout the site.
  • Completed six work packages, including multiple compressors, valves, and headers.

The $10 million project was successfully completed in October 2012 on time and on budget.
