Natural Gas Processing Projects Take Off in U.S.
A growing number of natural gas processing plant projects are dotting the landscape as gas is extracted from U.S. tight shale formations. Industrial Info is tracking more than 100 projects for planned, or already underway, natural gas processing projects involving grassroot construction or expansions at existing plants. While the bulk of these projects are in the Southwest market region, which contains Texas and Oklahoma, the Rocky Mountains contains a strong number of these projects, thanks to a growing number of plants in New Mexico and Colorado.
Among the projects in the Southwest region is Tall Oak Midstream’s (Edmond, Oklahoma) planned cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Wetumka, Oklahoma. The plant will process 200 million cubic feet per day of gas from the Arkoma Stack Gathering System. Construction is set to kick off in the next few months and be completed by the end of the year. Kahuna Ventures LLC (Westminster, Colorado) is performing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) on the project, which has an estimated total investment of $100 million.
Underway in Texas is Producers Midstream’s (Dallas, Texas) 60 million-cubic-foot-per-day processing plant in Van Horn. The plant will process natural gas from the Delaware Basin. Construction kicked off in the second half of last year and is expected to be completed soon.
In Colorado, DCP Midstream LLC (NYSE:DCP) (Denver, Colorado) is in the final stages of planning for its 200 million-cubic-foot-per-day Phase II expansion of its O’Connor processing plant in Kersey, Colorado. Saulsbury Industries is providing EPC on the project, which is expected to kick off soon and be completed in the third quarter of this year.
These are just a few of the more than 100 active capital natural gas processing projects being tracked by Industrial Info in the U.S. For more information or details on how to subscribe to our Project Platform, contact member services at (713) 783-5147.
