Alberta commission seeks input on TERIC Power project

The Alberta Utilities Commission said Nov. 28 that it will be considering the application for a 2-MW natural gas-fired power plant being developed by TERIC Power Ltd.

The power plant would consist of one induction generating unit and would be located in LSD 4, Section 5, Township 44, Range 9, west of the Fourth Meridian, north of Hardisty, Alberta. Written submissions are due by Jan. 9, 2015.

Teric Power had filed a Nov. 10 application at the commission for approval to construct and operate this plant. TERIC will install one induction-generating unit with a total real power generation capacity of 2 MW at the Sunrise project. The existing land use on the project site is the Killam 04-05-44-09-W4 Multi-well Gas Battery, an industrial facility owned and operated by TERIC Power. 

The Sunrise power plant’s fuel will be sweet natural gas withdrawn from the facility’s existing fuel gas headers. The expected in-service date for the power plant is Feb. 1, 2015.
