SemCAMS, a subsidiary of SemGroup Corporation plans to construct a new sour gas compressor on its existing Wapiti Pipeline. The new Wapiti compressor will increase pipeline capacity by 30 mmcf/d and deliver to SemCAMS' Kaybob South 3 (K3) gas plant, a world scale sour gas processing facility.

"SemCAMS is pleased with NuVista's continued growth and the confidence they have in our ability to handle additional liquids rich gas production from the Wapiti/Elmworth area," said David Gosse, SemCAMS' Vice President and General Manager.
