Senior E/I Technician, NGL Recovery (WRF I)
Based in Alberta, Wolf is a private company, backed by Canada Pension Plan Investments (CPP Investments). Wolf was formed in 2015 to focus on the acquisition and construction of innovative and sustainable midstream energy infrastructure assets in Western Canada. Wolf's long-term business plan, investment timeline, and continued dedication to finding innovative and sustainable midstream solutions creates a competitive alternative to other midstream companies. Wolf has grown through a series of acquisitions and successful developments, resulting in three businesses based on the Wolf-owned and operated Access Pipeline System, Alberta Carbon Trunk Line, and the NGL (Natural Gas Liquids) North System.
Wolf’s mission is to maintain operational excellence, foster strong relationships with customers and stakeholders, and enrich communities while generating superior returns on investments. Wolf has an uncompromising commitment and respect for health, safety, and the environment. Based on a strong set of core values, Wolf’s defining behaviors are "Act Like Shareholders, Be Customer Focused, Be Courageous, Do the Right Thing and Own It!”
In May 2021, Wolf announced the positive final investment decision for NGL North, a proprietary, integrated natural gas liquids (“NGL”) recovery, transportation, and separation system and with it, the formation of Wolf’s third business, Wolf NGL. NGL North recovers higher carbon NGL from the Alberta natural gas system that provides fuel gas to the oil sands. By recovering the NGL prior to combustion, NGL North is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the Christina Lake area by over 200,000 metric tonnes per year. In turn, the specification NGL products produced at Wolf Feedstock Separation (“WFS”) in Sturgeon County, Alberta will provide critical feedstock to support Alberta’s growing and industry - leading petrochemical complexes.
NGL North is the foundation of an expandable network capable of facilitating increased downstream market development to support the growing Alberta ethylene and propylene-based derivative industries as well as support energy transition globally by supplying cleaner burning fuels to Asia through West Coast marine export supporting decarbonization efforts well underway.
