Much has been said lately in the popular media about our environment and the results of our care of it for future generations. While some of the information given has been just hype, there remains the true aspect of our responsibility for environmental stewardship. We here at Newpoint Gas, LP are committed to doing our part in preserving our natural resources and our environment: case in point….. Newpoint Gas is actively involved in the reclamation of land and materials in the gas fields of Texas and Arizona, as well as other states. While the “plant salvage” process is not uncommon in the oil and gas industry, Newpoint Gas, LP is committed to the remediation and restoration of once used plant sites. This process not only allows us to reclaim usable equipment and materials, but also gives us the chance to partner with companies and governing entities in the environmental stewardship process. While these projects can be very costly and time consuming, Newpoint feels that the benefits of this reclamation far outweighs the expenditures of time and resources….not that we are in the business of losing money….but that there are some things in this world that are more important than profit margins. Newpoint Gas, LP knows that fanciful rhetoric and even good intentions will not get the job done, but that our commitment to responsible operating in the Gas treating industry, along with our resolve to be partners in stewardship of our natural resources and the environment is the only path that is acceptable.
Newpoint Gas, LP in conjunction with Allied Equipment of Odessa, Texas delivered the first of their new line of amine treating plants. The plant, a new 25 GPM plant, was shipped on May 10, 2006 to Desoto Pipeline Co. in Conway, Arkansas. These amine plants are being built on speculation and are being sold on a first come basis. Newpoint and Allied owners Wiley Rhodes and Ron Worley have teamed up to build 5 basic plant sizes, 10, 25, 40, 60, and 100 GPM Amine Plants, with the capability to modify and customize to better accommodate the needs of our customers. Newpoint designed these units and included its patented features which improve efficiency and runtime and are easy to operate. The emphasis of these plants is a quick delivery and quality that exceeds all standards set by the natural gas industry.
Newpoint Gas, LP recently had the opportunity to service two gas wells in the South Texas area with one of their tried and tested methods for sweetening natural gas streams. Utilizing the sulfa-treat method of contaminate removal, Newpoint was able to successfully reduce the H2S content of both wells, making their gas production sellable and safe. Newpoint Gas has aptly named their method of sulfa-treating for its unit packaging and accessibility. Their trade-marked logo of “Skid-treat” is appearing in more and more states where this method is a viable option. As with all of Newpoint Gas, LP treating methods, Skid-treat remains one of the standard-bearers of the industry.
Newpoint Gas, LP is pleased to announce the shipment of a 1,000 mscfd Trialkylarsine Removal Pilot Plant. This plant is a skid mounted unit with an integral cage to protect it during shipping and is fully self-contained and portable. The plant will be installed on an offshore platform in the Caribbean for a major international gas company. The plant will be able to treat natural gas streams through 2 parallel trains of lead/lag treating vessels. These two trains allow two different treating scenarios to be tested simultaneously with arsenic concentration in excess of 500 ppb w/w at pressures up to 1440 psig. Each treating vessel has 22 sample ports which are tubed to a sampling manifold for ease of use. The results from this pilot plant will be used for verification of the design for the full scale plant that will treat 450 mmscfd.
The quaint little town of Desdemona, Texas is the scene of Newpoint Gas’ latest Oxygen removal project. Using a single-stage oxygen plant, Newpoint Gas, LP met the needs of their Central Texas customer with a lease unit of superior design and durability, enabling them to remove the unmarketable contaminates from their local gas stream. Newpoint’s client praised them for not only providing top-notch equipment, but also for expert advice and engineering knowledge. Newpoint field representatives also provided monthly service and supplies for their satisfied client. With lease equipment in the field, Newpoint Gas, LP strives to bring quality and satisfaction to all its customers.
