Pinnacle Midstream to construct 60 MMcfd cryogenic gas processing plant
HOUSTON — Pinnacle Midstream, LLC announces it has begun engineering and construction on the Sierra Grande Gas Processing Plant, a 60MMcfd cryogenic gas plant located approximately 9 mi West of Orla, TX near RM 652.
The plant is expected to commence operations in the Q4 2017. The plant will offer full cryogenic recoveries with ethane rejection capability. Upon the completion of this plant, Pinnacle foresees the need to begin the expansion of this site to increase its capacity to meet the overwhelming demand for gas processing in Culberson County and Reeves County.
Pinnacle also operates natural gas gathering and crude gathering systems in the same vicinity of the Sierra Grande Gas Processing Plant, as well as a crude truck transloading terminal.
"The installation of the Sierra Grande Processing Plant is just one more step in Pinnacle's plan to be a full-service provider of midstream services in the Delaware Basin,” Greg Sargent said. “We believe that Pinnacle can be a "One Stop Shop" for the Culberson and Reeves County Producer. This will allow Pinnacle to lay all necessary pipelines to the individual well in order for the producer to begin production without the addition of any trucks to the area, thus improving on production run time and reducing the possibility of accidents or spills."
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.
