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.
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.
