Exshaw Oil Corp. has filed a facility application to construct and operate a 10.7-MW natural gas-fired power plant near Spirit River, said the Alberta Utilities Commission in an April 15 public notice.
Exshaw Oil an application with the AUC on Feb. 21 requesting an exemption from Section 11 of the Hydro and Electric Energy Act to construct and operate the 10.7-MW plant within its Spirit River sour gas processing plant located approximately 16 kilometers southwest of Spirit River. The power plant would not be connected to the Alberta Interconnected Electric System and would provide power solely for Exshaw’s own use. Exshaw plans to construct, operate and maintain four new 2,666 kW generating units at this site.
Exshaw intends to construct, as the recipient for this electricity, a grassroots sour gas processing plant to accommodate the sweetening of solution gas production in the area.
