UOP to supply gas processing plant for PennTex’s Louisiana NGL recovery
PennTex Midstream Partners has selected UOP Russell to supply a gas processing plant to recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs) in northern Louisiana, officials announced on Tuesday.
The plant, which will process 200 MMSCFD of natural gas, will be in production in the first quarter of 2015.
In addition, UOP Russell will serve as the project's engineering, construction and procurement contractor. UOP Russell's modular design and construction approach allows for quick construction, allowing the equipment to enter service up to six months faster than alternative approaches while ensuring superior quality control, according to company officials.
"A UOP Russell plant is an ideal solution to meet PennTex's need for swift installation and start-up along with reliable production," said Rebecca Liebert, senior vice president and general manager for UOP's gas processing and hydrogen business.
"The growing need for midstream services in northern Louisiana will be served well by our flexible, proven solution."
The UOP Russell solution includes supply and installation of modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, inlet/residue compression, control system, flare system and site electrical equipment, in addition to site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control center, and compressor requirements.
UOP Russell's pre-engineered modular equipment can easily be shipped to remote locations where gas often is discovered. Modules fit together easily and efficiently, significantly reducing construction time and expense and providing higher reliability after start-up. This enables customers to more quickly begin processing gas.
The modular approach also allows for swift field assembly and, when coupled with the UOP Russell standardized installation plan, results in a cost-effective solution.
