Natural Gas Liquids

We market and transport natural gas liquids (NGLs) and liquefied petroleum gases (LPGs) throughout North America by truck, rail and pipeline.

Natural Gas Liquids are marketed under the names: Gibson Gas Liquids, Gibson Energy U.S., and Gibson Energy Marketing.

Some notable facts about our operations are:

Propane
Gibson generally develops term contracts to correspond with the propane heating season in North America, typically throughout a good portion of the year. However, our Company has the supply, storage and distribution infrastructure to custom design supply contracts for any period of time.

In addition to propane supply, we are able to provide term business for transportation services as well as risk management.

Gibson will provide spot deals for one time, specific need and short-term business as well.

Butane
Gibson is a reliable supplier of all grades of butane to refineries across North America, and we have the capability to meet the butane blending demand for crude oil producers/transporters in Western Canada. Gibson enters into both long- and short-term storage arrangements in strategic locations across North America to optimize distribution during times of increased demand.

Condensate/Natural Gasoline
Using our extensive rail capabilities, Gibson purchases and transports condensate/natural gasoline in the U.S. and moves this product into Canada. Gibson utilizes proprietary offload capability in Edmonton to meet diluent demands from heavy oil producers in Western Canada.

Y-Grade/NGL Mix
Utilizing our fractionation capability, Gibson purchases raw mix and moves it via truck for processing at Hardisty. The resultant specification products are then moved to various markets throughout Western Canada and the U.S. Gibson also has the ability to transload raw mix onto rail cars utilizing our transloading assets. This mix is then transported to the U.S. for processing with midstream operators in the major hubs.

Trading and Risk Management
Gibson provides a number of financial instruments to complement our strategic supply initiatives and help our customers manage their risk.
