Honeywell’s UOP Russell business will provide a turn-key cryogenic gas processing plant to Cureton Midstream LLC. The new plant is designed to extract 99% of ethane and 100% of propane from natural gas in Weld County, Colorado, located in the Niobrara basin.
The UOP Russell solution includes supply and installation of modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, residue compression, control system, flare system and site electrical equipment, in addition to site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control center, and compressor requirements.
The plant uses an advanced cycle recycle split vapor (RSV) process to recover natural gas liquids (NGLs) from residue gas for use as petrochemical feedstocks, increasing the value of feed gas supplied to Cureton by independent gas producers.
Cureton is a Denver-based midstream company founded in 2016. The company has overseen projects and operations in Colorado, North Dakota, Utah, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana.
