Honeywell's UOP announced Wednesday that Mistral Midstream
has selected the UOP Russell modular equipment to
recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs) from natural gas
produced in southern Saskatchewan, Canada.
The UOP Russell modular cryogenic equipment will
process 60 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of
natural gas. It is expected to be in production in late 2014
at Mistrals site.
UOPs modular design and construction
equipment to enter service up to six months faster than
alternative approaches while ensuring superior quality
control, according to company officials.
The Mistral application is the first for UOP Russell
equipment in the northern Bakken basin.

UOPs ability to work in the northern Bakken basin,
especially as shale gas, remote gas and distributed gas play
a more vital role in the global energy economy, said
Rebecca Liebert, UOPs senior vice president and general
manager for the gas processing and hydrogen business
UOP Russell modular equipment reduces field construction
time and lowers
capital and operating costs for customers such as Mistral,
and allows our customers to achieve aggressive schedules to
first gas, which can generate significant incremental value
for gas producers and processors.
Mistral is a privately-held company that builds, owns and
operates energy infrastructure, such as processing plants,
pipelines, terminals and storage facilities
that support both the
natural gas and the natural gas liquids industries.
Because it employs modular design and construction, UOP
Russell can easily ship equipment to remote locations where
gas is often discovered. Modules fit together quickly and
efficiently, significantly reducing construction
time and expense.
This design allows gas customers to more quickly begin
processing gas and earning revenue.
The modular approach also allows for greater ease of
operations for the customer due to the use of common parts
that simplify maintenance
