Saulsbury partners with Apache Corp. to build Permian Basin gas processing infrastructure
ODESSA, TEXAS–Saulsbury was recently awarded a contract to construct three cryogenic processing plants at Apache's Diamond processing facility, each designed with a capacity of 200 MMSCFD.
Saulsbury will be responsible for the construction of the processing facilities to include liquid stabilization, slug catchers, gas treating, gas processing, and residue gas compression. These facilities will feature industry-leading technology that allows for higher recovery of valuable propane, ethane, and heavier liquids which maximizes natural gas liquids production. Work will begin in early June 2018 with the first train expected in the first half of 2019 and the remaining two trains expected to wrap up in the third quarter of 2019.
For Saulsbury, this award supports the company’s longstanding reputation as the premier oil and gas construction company in the Permian Basin. The company has contracted over 50 cryogenic processing facilities since 2006 and is well known in the industry for its successful project execution and world-class safety performance.
Saulsbury has been strategically preparing for this surge in oil and gas activity in the Permian Basin for several years through continued development of its personnel and recently surpassed 5,500 employees, which means they have the capacity to meet the demands of their current and future clients in these ever-changing market conditions.
“We are extremely excited to announce that Apache chose Saulsbury for this project,” said Bubba Saulsbury, EVP, Corporate Strategy. “As one of the largest acreage holders in the Permian Basin, Apache has established itself as a strategic leader and world-class producer and we are delighted to contribute to their significant growth in the Permian Basin.”
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported in April that the US set records for natural gas production in 2017.

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.
