Plans for two new cryogenic processing facilities, with a base-rated capacity of 200 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) each, have been unveiled for the Midland Basin, US.

Texas-based Saulsbury on Monday (Jan 17) confirmed the news, stating that it has been awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contracts for the facilities.

With a phased commissioning projected to start in late 2022, Saulsbury will now be responsible for amine treating, molecular sieve dehydration, cryogenic gas processing, residue gas compression, nitrogen rejection, slug catching, condensate stabilisation, and all balance of plant equipment, utilities, electrical, instrumentation, and controls infrastructure.

Sean Trotter, Vice-President of EPC Engineering and Major Projects at Saulsbury, said, “This important project will continue to showcase Saulsbury’s position as a premier EPC contractor for delivering high-quality, speed-to-market solutions for the midstream gas processing space.”

“Our continued practice of implementing project-specific design innovations and optimisation will further strengthen our commitment to delivering one of the Midland Basin’s premier facilities for our client.”

The new contracts mark Saulsbury’s 61st and 62nd cryogenic processing facility projects since 2006.
