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.
In the business of hydrocarbon production, accurate accounting of produced fluids and gases is critical from a process control, management and fiscal perspective.
The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction.
