Assuming you have enough wall thickness in the existing steel to handle the extra pressure. Typically with these large pipelines operate fairly close to their MOP (max operating pressure) which would be dictated by the pipe wall thickness installed.

If you just add pump stations rather than increase the pressure of each existing pump station you can increase flow without increasing MOP. It will increase energy cost per barrel as doubling flow means 4 times the pressure drop.

It also depends on whether pressure drop or errosional velocity was the governing sizing case for the line.

No extra MOP, just extra pressure drop. I saw a document showing they had an expansion planned in advance, but I haven't been able to find it since. I assume they are probably keeping a lid on that possibility.

Significant slip in support for UCP over job, economy and budget cuts: poll

Quote:
The UCP government has experienced a major drop in public support over the last two months according to a new ThinkHQ poll out Monday morning.

According to the poll, a majority of Albertans (53 per cent) disapprove of the provincial government’s performance. The poll found 44 per cent of Albertans approve of the performance.

Broken down further, 38 per cent strongly disapprove of the government’s performance while only 16 percent strongly approve.
Quote:
Compared to mid-October, approval for the UCP has dropped 12 percentage points and, according to the poll, the new government is seeing almost identical ratings to what the NDP government had just prior to the spring election.

Not surprising. I still stand by my assessment that they will get the really unpopular stuff underway year 1 and 2. By the time year 3 and 4 come around they will throw some bones to their base and gather enough support for another majority. Unless the economy totally ####s the bed before then, which would be a disaster for everyone, politics aside.

Buyer's remorse despite it being clear as day that Albertans were about to buy a product not fit-for-purpose.

Pretty standard playbook. I would guess they are surprised by the extent of the backlash but not that there is some.

The poll conducted last week showed over 50% of adults aged 18-34 strongly and generally disapprove of the Kenney government, although the poll (conducted by DART) was among Canadian (not necessarily Albertans).

What that suggests to me is that there is probably substantial disapproval from Albertans in the same age range, but more that the Kenney brand of politics does not resonate with the majority of young adults across the country. I would be wary about getting an endorsement from Jason Kenney to run as a federal leader; it didn't work for Scheer and it may not have much benefit for the next leader.

War Room getting into action trying to stop foreign influence from the, *checks notes*, Medicine Hat News.



I have more awareness of this op-ed ( https://medicinehatnews.com/commenta...-joke-at-best/ ) than I ever would have had without the War Room getting involved, so it's definitely proving to be a worthwhile use of tax dollars.

This is the best that the 30 Million Dollar War Room that employs at least 150 Matt Wolf's can come up with?

The war room is working as intended. It’s informing Albertans of all the people who are against them so when other parties talk about doing things that require external support it pushes voters into the arms of the UCP.

Now the war room should be selling all of the advantages of Alberta oil rather than attacking people. It should be positive propaganda at the main funders of the environmental groups in Canada which happen to be Canadian citizens. Instead it’s just being used to create an In vs Out group to lock up votes in future elections.

Jobs, pipelines, the economy. Dignity and decorum. They have a mandate to do this. $200K for a social media manager is a drop in the bucket compared to what the NDP would have done. Etc.

Soooo...I have a question. This Matt Wolf guy, is his twitter account his personal one? Is he doing this representing the government, or the UCP? Are we paying him to tweet? Because stuff like below looks pretty partisan, and maybe we should be examining if government employees should be spending their time on partisan activities. I understand why MP's do it, but he was hired. If he is basically in campaign mode for the UCP for 4 years on our dollar, is that proper, or do we already have laws to control this?

As far as I can see, he's a hired troll that is working out of the "war room"
and makes just $194,253 to curse at healthcare workers and teachers and defend the UCP online. He may or may not have gotten the plum job by assisting in the Jason Kenny Kamikaze UCP leadership campaign that will no longer be investigated...

It kind of sounds like a violation if he's being paid by tax payers to continuously campaign for the UCP.

His position is one of the most aggravating within that government. He basically gets paid almost $200K a year to argue on Twitter and other social media platforms. Seriously. It's something you could pay someone, right now, $30K to do with the exact same effect.

Why that large amount of money isn't going to helping new tech startups in this province, a much more fruitful venture for this province, is beyond me.
