AltaGas Ltd. ("AltaGas") (TSX:ALA) today announced it has received the final regulatory approval required to begin construction on its 120 Mmcf/d Gordondale gas processing facility, located approximately 100 km northwest of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The plant will be equipped with liquids extraction facilities to capture the natural gas liquids value for AltaGas' customers.

"The Gordondale gas processing facility is an exceptional gas infrastructure project that showcases our ability to deliver on our growth objectives", said David Cornhill, Chairman and CEO of AltaGas Ltd. "This two phased project will allow for early production to our Pouce Coupe facility in the coming months prior to Gordondale coming online late next year. This project affirms our commitment to being a leading energy infrastructure company."

The Gordondale gas processing facility and gathering system will cost approximately $235 million. The gas processing facility is expected to be in service in late 2012. By using existing infrastructure in the area, AltaGas anticipates providing processing for early production by mid-2011. The project has now received all the necessary regulatory approvals.

The plant is located in the Montney resource area, one of the largest, low-cost, liquids rich resource plays in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. This plant will allow AltaGas to provide a midstream solution to a number of producers in the area. The addition of deep cut facilities to the project allows producers to extract additional value for liquids from the gas they bring to the plant for processing. The natural gas liquids extraction facilities also allow AltaGas to expand its service offering to market liquids for customers and to purchase gas at the plant gate and extract the value of the liquids.
