Honeywell's UOP wins EPC contract for gas plant

UOP, a Honeywell company, announced that PennTex North Louisiana, a subsidiary of PennTex Midstream Partners, has selected UOP to engineer, procure and construct (EPC) a gas processing plant to recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs) in northern Louisiana. The new plant will be capable of processing 200MMSCFD of natural gas and will be in production in the fourth quarter of 2015.

The EPC contract is the second that PennTex North Louisiana has awarded UOP for its North Louisiana operations. UOP's pre-engineered modular gas processing plant will enable quick construction and installation, allowing PennTex North Louisiana to start up on schedule, while providing superior quality control. PennTex has also entered into a letter of intent with UOP to purchase a third 200MMSCFD cryogenic plant, scheduled for delivery in November 2015, which will be used in one of Penntex's midstream platforms.

For both PennTex North Louisiana projects, UOP will supply and install the modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, inlet/residue compression, control system, flare system and site electrical equipment. It will also supply site utility systems and buildings for office, control room, motor control centre, and compressor requirements.
