UOP LLC, a division of Honeywell International Inc., has been chosen by Producers Midstream LP to supply its UOP Russell modular cryogenic equipment to process 200 million standard cubic feet per day of natural gas at its gas processing facility in the Delaware Basin in western Texas.
Cryogenic units extract high-value natural gas liquids (NGLs) from natural gas streams by refrigeration to extremely low temperature. These NGLs – ethane, propane and butanes – are typically used for heating or to manufacture plastics, chemicals and fuels.
“This plant is designed for the varying feed gases common in the Delaware Basin,” said Craig Ranta, business director, UOP Russell. “Because it’s so flexible, the plant can deliver top recovery rates with changing gas composition, and with minimal downtime.”
The plant’s key mechanical equipment allows it to run at different capacities to accommodate additional wells and changes in feed supply. The plant also can switch between ethane rejection and recovery modes as demand for ethane changes.
“Producers Midstream selected UOP Russell because of our ability to customise specific designs based on operating philosophies, vendor preferences and broad experience with changing feeds,” Ranta added. “In addition, the plant can be assembled, shipped, and put into operation very quickly, allowing Producers Midstream to begin generating revenue much sooner.”
Honeywell, developer, manufacturer and supplier of refrigerants, has announced that Tesco, one of the world’s largest supermarket chains, is converting more than 1,200 stores across the UK to Honeywell’s Solstice ® N40 refrigerant in order to meet its carbon reduction commitments.
Honeywell has provided the Linde Group with a sophisticated operation solution that aids simulator-based training for its remote operating centres, controlling gas plants across the globe.
