Honeywell announced today that a new UOP Russell modular gas processing plant in northern Louisiana has begun processing rich natural gas and recovering valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs). This is the second turnkey UOP Russell plant commissioned by PennTex Midstream Partners, LP, capable of processing 200 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of natural gas. PennTex’s first UOP Russell gas plant began operation in May 2015.
“Natural gas is on trend to become the world’s second-largest source of energy by 2035, so the ability to process gas reserves profitably is critical to meet that growing demand,” said John Gugel, vice president and general manager for Honeywell UOP’s Gas Processing and Hydrogen business. “UOP Russell pre-engineered modular gas processing plants, coupled with a turnkey solution, help companies such as PennTex process gas and recover valuable NGLs faster than with stick-built plants, all with better quality and more attractive economics.”
For both PennTex projects, Honeywell UOP supplied and installed modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, and inlet/residue compression units, along with the control system, the flare system and site electrical equipment. Honeywell UOP also provided site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control center and compressors.
