Canyon Midstream Partners II, LLC has purchased cryogenic technology from Honeywell International Inc. to recover natural gas liquids in a new plant in the US.

Canyon Midstream will use UOP Russell modular cryogenic equipment at the site, which will process 200 million standard cubic feet per day of gas at its Redcliff Midstream processing facility in Woodward County, Oklahoma.

The cryogenic units will extract high-value natural gas liquids (NGLs) from natural gas streams by refrigeration to extremely low temperatures. NGLs, like ethane, propane and butanes, are typically used for heating or to manufacture plastics, chemicals and fuels.

Unique aspects of the pre-engineered plant include its single-stage, high-pressure compressor and customised brazed aluminium heat exchangers.

Craig Ranta, Senior Business Leader at UOP Russell, signified, “This shop-fabricated and pre-engineered plant is customised to process the unique feed gas composition in north-western Oklahoma.”

“The combination of pre-engineering and customisation means that we can deliver this technology for site-specific applications using modular platforms that can be built and enter service very quickly, and operate with high reliability.”

The Redcliff Midstream facility will enter service early next year and will serve producers in the US state. 

UOP LLC, a division of Honeywell International Inc., is an international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, and consulting services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries.
