Our infrastructure

Canbriam’s operational strategy is characterized by our ownership and control of all field infrastructure: processing facilities, midstream gathering assets, water handling assets and camps.  We also control the roads within our main development area.  This approach reduces our reliance on third parties, ensures compliance to safety and operating procedures, and ultimately lowers operating costs.

Altares Processing Facility

In early 2015, Canbriam commissioned the first phase of the Altares Processing Facility, located at b-72-A. The facility is designed to reach a total capacity of 400 MMcf/d and is being built in four successive phases.  Phase 1 has nameplate capacity of 80 MMcf/d or approximately 15,000 boe/d including natural gas liquids.  In October 2015, Canbriam completed Phase 2 taking total capacity to 160 MMcf/d or approximately 30,000 boe/d.

Plans are in place and long lead-time equipment has been ordered for phase 3, which represents an additional 120 MMcf/d expansion to the Altares Processing Facility. 

The Altares Processing Facility also includes the water handling & recycling facility, located at c-62-A, immediately adjacent to the b-72-A plant site.
