Keyera Partnership signs sour gas processing plant agreement with Jacobs
DALLAS — Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has signed an engineering services agreement with Keyera Partnership, which operates one of the largest independent midstream energy companies in Canada. The company services oil and gas producers in Western Canada and transports natural gas liquids such as propane, ethane, butane, condensate and iso-octane to markets throughout North America.

The new agreement enables Jacobs to provide engineering services for the Wapiti Liquids Handling & Gas Processing Facility, a key part of Keyera’s Wapiti Development project for constructing a natural gas gathering and processing complex in the Wapiti area south of Grand Prairie, Alberta.
At full build-out of both phases of the project, the new facility is expected to process up to 300 MMcf of sour gas and 25,000 bbl of field condensate per day. Keyera is also looking at the possibility of connecting the new complex to its existing Montney asset base and network, further diversifying its service offering in the region.
“This agreement marks a significant milestone for Jacobs to leverage our presence in the midstream industry in Canada, and increase our market share and potential for growth in this sector,” said Jacobs Senior Vice President, Oil & Gas, Bassim Shebaro. “Understanding Keyera’s already impressive gas gathering and processing business, this contract could be the start of a mutually beneficial long-term relationship.”
Jacobs will support this deal 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 our upstream and midstream clients.
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
