Canyon Midstream purchases Honeywell technology to recover NGLs
DES PLAINES, Ill. – Honeywell announced that Canyon Midstream Partners II, LLC will use UOP Russell modular cryogenic equipment to process 200 MMscfd of natural gas at its Redcliff Midstream gas processing facility in Woodward County, Okla.

Cryogenic units extract high-value natural gas liquids (NGLs) from natural gas streams by refrigeration to extremely low temperatures. These NGLs—ethane, propane and butanes—are typically used for heating or to manufacture plastics, chemicals and fuels.
“This shop-fabricated and pre-engineered plant is customized to process the unique feed gas composition in northwestern Oklahoma,” said Craig Ranta, senior business leader, UOP Russell. “The combination of pre-engineering and customization means that we can deliver this technology for site-specific applications using modular platforms that can be built and enter service very quickly, and operate with high reliability.”
When the Redcliff Midstream facility enters service early next year, it will serve producers in Oklahoma’s “STACK Play,” named for natural gas fields in the Sooner Trend, Anadarko Basin and Canadian and Kingfisher Counties.
Unique aspects of this plant include its single-stage high-pressure compressor and customizations to the brazed aluminum heat exchangers, both of which reduce capital and operating expense while delivering high recovery of NGLs.
At CERAWeek by IHS Markit, held in Houston in March, IEA Director Fatih Birol said that the world would soon see a major second wave of shale gas production from the US in response to higher energy prices and growing demand from India and China.
Mozambique and Tanzania hold an estimated 180 Tft3 and 57 Tft3 of proven natural gas reserves, respectively.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
