Keyera Announces Long-Term Sulphur Services Agreement and Facilities Expansion

Keyera Announces Long-Term Sulphur Services Agreement and Facilities Expansion 
CALGARY, June 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Keyera Corp. (TSX:KEY) (TSX:KEY.DB.A) 
("Keyera") announced today a long-term, fee-for-service agreement to provide 
sulphur handling and forming services at its Strachan gas plant to Suncor 
Energy ("Suncor"). 
This agreement underpins planned modifications to the sulphur receipt and 
forming facilities at the Strachan gas plant, including the replacement of the 
existing sulphur forming facility with a new 1,500 tonne per day sulphur 
forming and degassing unit. This new unit will use patented technology 
developed by Brimrock Group Inc. to provide for more efficient conversion of 
molten sulphur into solid, premium sulphur granules. Keyera will also be 
expanding its molten sulphur rail off-loading capability and adding 
incremental de-gassing and storage capacity to the site. 
Suncor will be bringing the sulphur to the Strachan plant from its facilities 
in the Fort McMurray area for processing. The volumes to be delivered under 
the agreement are expected to utilize over half of the sulphur forming 
capacity at the Strachan plant, with the balance of the capacity being 
available to support the plant's sour gas processing operations and to provide 
sulphur handling and forming services for other potential customers. 
The agreement with Suncor has a 10-year term and services are provided on a 
take-or-pay basis. The anticipated cost of the modifications to the sulphur 
facilities is approximately $40 million and the facilities are expected to be 
operational in the first half of 2015. 
"We're pleased to be able to provide Suncor with this value-added service and 
believe Strachan is the ideal location to process sulphur," stated David 
Smith, President and Chief Operating Officer of Keyera. "This agreement allows 
us to continue to provide premium sulphur handling services at our Strachan 
gas plant while improving our environmental footprint through the addition of 
newer, more environmentally friendly and efficient technology." 
About the Strachan Gas Plant 
The Strachan gas plant, located approximately 200 kilometres southwest of 
Edmonton, Alberta, offers significant raw gas processing services for natural 
gas producers in west central Alberta, including NGL extraction and sour gas 
handling. The Strachan gas plant is Keyera's sulphur hub, providing sulphur 
handling services to customers including sulphur recovery; sulphur forming; 
sulphur truck/rail loading and off-loading; and a large sulphur block with 
storage capacity of approximately 500,000 tonnes. With its connections to 
three major gathering systems (Strachan North, Garrington Caroline and Burnt 
Timber/Ram River), the Strachan gas plant is able to attract gas from a large 
capture area covering approximately 2,500 square kilometres. As one of 
Keyera's largest gas plants, it is a strategic part of the Keyera gathering 
and processing infrastructure portfolio.
