IMV Projects, a Wood Group company, has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract by AltaGas to provide full engineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) services for the C$235MM Gordondale sour gas processing facility and associated gas gathering system in Canada.
The facility will be designed to process 120 million cubic feet/day and will include deep cut liquids extraction capabilities to recover the natural gas liquids before the gas enters the sales gas pipeline. It will be located approximately 100km northwest of Grande Prairie, in the Gordondale area of the Montney shale gas play, and is expected to be on-stream by the fourth quarter of 2012, pending regulatory approval.
A deep cut facility removes natural gas liquids (ethane, propane, butane, and heavier hydrocarbon liquids), from the gas before it enters the sales gas pipeline.
IMV Projects has been involved with the development of the project since its inception, performing the original scoping study and the front-end engineering design (FEED).
“We are very pleased to extend our relationship with AltaGas on this facility,” said Kevin O’Brien, president of IMV Projects. ”We aim to be Canada's go-to project execution provider for the energy industry and this project will showcase our gas processing capabilities.”
IMV Projects also designed the expansion of AltaGas’ Ante Creek processing facility, which is currently being constructed and features a new amine train, refrigeration unit and gathering system.
