US-based KP Engineering (KPE) has won a $100m contract to provide engineering, procurement and construction on a 200 million standard cubic feet per day natural gas cryogenic processing facility in Texas.
The contract has been awarded by Targa Pipeline Mid-Continent WestTex LLC, a subsidiary of Targa Resources Corp.
The facility, located near Midkiff, in the Permian Basin of West Texas, will include a 5,000 SBPD condensate stabiliser, low-pressure compression, intermediate compression, custody transfer metering, slug catchers and a control system for processing raw natural gas into merchantable natural gas by extracting natural gas liquids (NGLs) and removing impurities.
KPE’s President and Chief Operating Officer, William E. Preston, said the award, the third major project for Targa within the past 18 months, is the result of substantial collaboration between Targa and KPE.
He added, “This collaboration has ensured the project’s advanced process design is efficient and cost effective. The cryogenic gas plant will allow Targa to increase its NGL extraction capacity, and we look forward to helping them build on their gas-processing capabilities in the Permian Basin.”
KPE uses smart engineering to provide capital-efficient EPC solutions for companies in midstream, refining, petrochemical and syngas markets that result in investment and delivery predictability. The company was formed in 2004 by a group of engineers in Tyler, Texas.
US-based heavy industrial construction company Saulsbury Industries has been awarded a contract to work on a 200 million standard cubic feet per day natural gas cryogenic processing facility in New Mexico.
NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope began a nearly 100-day cryogenic test in a giant chamber in Texas last month.
