Jacobs selected by Keyera for phase two of Wapiti Gas Plant expansion
DALLAS, /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. was awarded a contract for engineering services for Keyera's Wapiti Gas Plant Phase Two expansion, adding 150 million cubic feet per day of sour gas processing to the plant currently under construction near Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. Keyera estimates construction of this second phase to be complete mid-2020 at a total installed cost of $150 million.
Jacobs engineered the Wapiti Gas Plant Phase One and will now design a second train, expanding Keyera's capacity in the liquids-rich Montney region of northwestern Alberta. Investment is growing in this area as Keyera develops critical assets and infrastructure contributing to the economic sustainability of the region.
"Keyera operates one of the largest independent midstream energy companies in Canada, is a cornerstone client for Jacobs in Alberta, and we are committed to supporting their Wapiti Development project," said Jacobs Energy, Chemicals and Resources President Vinayak Pai. "This contract builds on Keyera's already impressive gas gathering and processing business in the midstream industry in Canada."
At full build-out of both phases of the project, the new facility is expected to process up to 300 million cubic feet of sour gas and 25,000 barrels of field condensate per day.
Jacobs will support this project from its Calgary office, which represents the company's center of excellence in North America for natural gas liquids, gas treating and processing and sulfur solutions, delivering innovation and value for its upstream and midstream clients.
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported in April that the US set records for natural gas production in 2017.

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
