PennTex North Louisiana LLC, a unit of PennTex Midstream Partners LLC, Houston, has selected UOP LLC, Des Plaines, Ill., to engineer, procure, and construct (EPC) a gas processing plant to recover NGLs in northern Louisiana (OGJ, June 2, 2014, p. 72).
The 200-MMscfd plant will be in production in fourth-quarter 2015.
The contract is the second PennTex North Louisiana has awarded UOP for its north Louisiana operations. UOP’s pre-engineered modular gas processing plant will allow PennTex North Louisiana to start up on schedule, said the UOP announcement.
Also, PennTex will buy from UOP a third 200-MMscfd cryogenic plant, scheduled for delivery in November 2015.
For both PennTex North Louisiana projects, UOP will supply and install the modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid-gas removal, inlet and residue compression, control system, flare system, and site electrical equipment. It will also supply site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control center, and compressor requirements.
PennTex in March announced a joint venture with producers in the North Louisiana region, backed by equity from investment firm NGP Energy Capital Management.
