Kazakhstan may be over 11,000 km away but that has not kept Newpoint Gas from making it the recipient of a newly manufactured amine plant. The plant, which was designed, engineered, and manufactured by Newpoint Gas, incorporates several patent-pending processes which not only improve reliability but ease of operation as well. Whether it is H2S or CO2 removal, Newpoint Gas has and will continue to make the pursuit of solving gas acid problems priority one.
Newpoint Gas, LP has just made public their contract with Kinder Morgan to design, manufacture, and install a natural gas treating plant at the West Frenchie Draw site in the state of Wyoming. HFG Engineering will provide engineering and project management support, while working with Newpoint and Kinder Morgan to ensure the success of the project. The construction of this state-of-the-art facility will be a great achievement for all companies, given the harsh weather conditions, terrain of the area, and the timeframe in which the facility must be completed. Newpoint Gas’ engineering staff is charged to provide the same superior product, support, and service as it has with all Newpoint projects. This new eco-minded facility will include a 350 GPM amine plant for the removal of CO2, a 10 GPM TEG dehydration system, as well as, all buildings, ancillary equipment, and electrical generation systems. With months of negotiations and project planning behind them, Kinder Morgan, Newpoint Gas and HFG Engineering are poised to break ground on this project to fulfill the needs of America’s vital natural gas industry. With Newpoint’s and HFG’s history of success, Kinder Morgan will be the beneficiary of a superior product and service, and the natural gas treating industry will once again be shown that “quality is never an accident”!
Elmridge Resources, Ignacio Colorado Plant, will be the recipient of another unique Newpoint Gas, LP design. A dual column condensate stabilizer will be added to Elmridge’s large gas processing plant at Ignacio, to enable them to stabilize up to 300 BPD of condensate into a Y-grade product, (12 RVP product of 12 PSI or less). This new equipment will complement Newpoint’s Membrane Treating skid which has been in use at the Elmridge plant for almost a year. Given Newpoint Gas’ reputation for product superiority, quality service, and guaranteed delivery dates, an October 31st delivery will ensure Elmridge’s continued success in the processing of natural gas for a burgeoning marketplace.
LLOG Exploration Company, L.L.C. has retained Newpoint Gas, LP to design and fabricate a 10 MMSCFD, two-stage membrane plant for the removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from an offshore natural gas stream. The membrane unit will be located on the HI 156 platform and is designed to lower the CO2 content to levels required to meet pipeline quality specifications. Delivery of the plant is scheduled for July 1, 2007.
With an abundance of natural gas in the area, Durango, Colorado (Ignacio specifically) became the site designated for the introduction of Membrane Treating technologies provided by Newpoint Gas, LP. This innovative system has been the first of its type implemented in this region for the removal of CO2 from natural gas streams. With extreme temperature conditions at both ends of the thermometer, the Durango area production offered quite a challenge for the engineering staff at Newpoint. Undaunted by this obstacle of nature, Newpoint Gas, LP opted for installing the unitized plant inside a permanent structure. Given the regional difficulties this installation was successfully and efficiently completed to the customers satisfaction. As with all Newpoint projects, service after the sale remains at the top of their list of priorities.
Big Piney, Wyoming (population just under 500) is the scene of the latest Amine Plant delivery by Newpoint Gas. This rugged area of South-Western Wyoming is the latest place to find itself on Newpoint’s map of success. Given the harsh winter conditions of this region (recorded at 30 below) Newpoint Gas, LP has installed its 60 GPM Amine Plant inside an on-site building. Although Newpoint engineers and designs all its equipment to meet the conditions of delivery locations, the liquid amine currently on the market has temperature specific limitations. Newpoint’s customer in the Big Piney area is in need of CO2 removal from their gas stream, and in typical Newpoint fashion they have met the challenge with resolve and have engineered a plant that will not only fit the immediate needs of their customer, but will also provide years of superior service.
Newpoint Gas, LP has just completed a conceptual study for a 450 mmscfd Arsenic Removal facility. This study was completed at the request of a major natural gas company for a system in the Caribbean. The study addressed site requirements, catalyst life vs. capital costs, process description, process and instrumentation diagrams (P&ID’s), process flow diagrams (PFD’s), and environmental impacts. This study, along with the results of the pilot plant that will ship early next month, will be the basis for the final design of the facility.
