Rockwell Automation selected for three Encana gas processing plants
HOUSTON — Rockwell Automation is working with Encana, a leading North American energy producer, as the main automation contractor (MAC) while the energy company builds three new gas-processing plants in the Montney region of Canada.
Two of the three Encana facilities, Tower and Sunrise, were successfully deployed under budget and ahead of schedule this fall. The third facility, Saturn, is on track to start up before the end of the year.
Rockwell Automation has been contracted to engineer, supply, procure and manage the control systems, safety instrumented systems and interfaces to the third-party OEM skids in each Encana facility. Rockwell Automation engineers are managing each step of the design, programming, commissioning and startup of the three plants. Rockwell Automation is delivering a plant-wide control solution including process automation and intelligent power control.
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
