The Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation (CKPC) wants to build a massive, $4-billion complex in Sturgeon County.
 
On the heels of the Northwest Redwater Partnership Sturgeon Refinery, the complex would be the latest billion-dollar addition located in Sturgeon's share of Alberta's Industrial Heartland.
 
“This proposed project represents significant economic benefits to Sturgeon County, including increased property tax base, investment in municipal infrastructure, local sourcing opportunities and high-quality jobs both during construction and operations,” said Sturgeon County CAO, Peter Tarnawsky. “We support the proposed petrochemical facility as a step in the right direction to diversify our local economy within Alberta.”
 
The Canada Kuwait Petrochemical Corporation is proposing a fully integrated propane dehydrogenation and polypropylene production facility (creating plastic pellets), as well as associated infrastructure such as pipeline connectivity, utilities and rail.
 
Alberta and Sturgeon County are both aiming to show themselves as globally competitive jurisdictions to secure world-scale energy infrastructure investments.
 
CKPC is a 50/50 joint venture between Canada’s Pembina Pipeline Corporation and Kuwait’s Petrochemical Industries Company K.S.C. They're also connected with M.E. Global in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Right now, engineers are working on the design phase, the start of construction has yet to be determined.
