Keyera markets NGL mix, crude oil and sulphur
as well as specification products such as propane, butane, condensate and
marketing activities are a natural extension of our other business lines. Building
on our substantial interests in natural gas gathering systems, processing
facilities, fractionation, storage and
transportation assets, we are ideally positioned to provide a strategic link
between producers and customers in the growing North American natural gas
products commodity business.
- Infrastructure: Our commercial business is integrated
with our other businesses, and we have priority access to key fractionation,
storage, pipeline, logistics, and transportation infrastructure.
- Geographic and customer
diversity: We purchase supply from a
multitude of producers and sell specification products to industrial
customers and retailers.
- Logistics expertise: With a well-trained and experienced professional
staff, Keyera provides a wide range of services. We coordinate
fractionation, storage, and transportation via pipeline, truck and rail,
to access markets throughout North America.
flexibility to manage our physical inventory, combined with a talented team of
professionals who manage our credit and risk profile, has generated an
impressive track record of results in our Marketing business. Unlike our other
two business segments, which are fee-for-service businesses, our Marketing
business earns a margin through the purchase and subsequent sale of NGLs in
markets across North America. Most of the products we market are purchased and
sold in the same month, minimizing our exposure to price fluctuations. However,
we do store NGLs to meet seasonal demand requirements. To minimize the risk
associated with falling product prices while the product is in inventory, we
have adopted a disciplined approach to price risk management.
