LINN Energy, BCCK to construct of cryogenic gas plant
HOUSTON — LINN Energy, Inc. announced that LINN Midstream, LLC has been renamed Blue Mountain Midstream LLC and entered into a definitive agreement with BCCK Engineering, Inc. to construct the Chisholm Trail Cryogenic Gas Plant. Blue Mountain is a wholly owned subsidiary of LINN Energy, Inc. and its assets include the Chisholm Trail midstream business in central Oklahoma.
Chisholm Trail is located in the heart of the prolific liquids-rich Merge/SCOOP/STACK play and has approximately 30 mi of existing gas gathering pipeline and approximately 60 MMcfd of current refrigeration capacity. Infrastructure expansions are underway to add 35 miles of low pressure gathering, increase compression throughput and construct a new cryogenic plant to improve liquids recoveries.
Blue Mountain has entered into a definitive agreement with BCCK to construct a highly efficient, state-of-the-art 225 MMcfd cryogenic gas processing facility with a total capacity of 250 MMcfd. Construction is underway and it is expected to be commissioned during the Q2 2018. LINN acreage recently contributed to Roan Resources LLC remains dedicated to Chisholm Trail.
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
