OPERATIONS

Veresen Midstream is a leading western Canadian natural gas and NGL midstream business. We’re focused on developing and owning infrastructure connecting the top producing basins to markets, with a strong foundation in the core of the Montney region.

The Montney play is one of the lowest cost gas supply regions in North America which is demonstrated by the significant level of current and planned producer activity despite today’s commodity price environment. We look forward working with our customers and other producers in the area to unlock the value of this world class resource play by providing flexible and innovative midstream solutions.
