Honeywell’s UOP Russell business will provide a high-recovery cryogenic gas processing plant to Caprock Midstream, LLC for its Pecos Bend facility in West Texas, US. The new plant is designed to extract 99% of ethane and 100% of propane and heavier hydrocarbons from natural gas in the Permian basin.
Honeywell’s UOP Russell solution includes design, supply and installation of a modular cryogenic plant, refrigeration, dehydration and acid gas removal units; a facility control system; flare system; and required electrical equipment. The turnkey plant design streamlines project schedules and is preconfigured for the specific gas composition in that location.
In addition, the plant will use Process Insight Reliability Advisor, a Honeywell Connected Plant service that provides ongoing monitoring, early event detection and mitigation of performance issues before they become costly. This technology leverages Honeywell UOP process simulators and fault models configured to each operation, recommending plant-specific solutions that can help customers avoid significant losses in productivity.
The plant uses an advanced cycle Recycle Split Vapor (RSV) process to recover NGLs from feed gas for use as petrochemical feedstocks, enhancing the value of feed gas supplied to Caprock by independent gas producers. Honeywell UOP works directly with Ortloff Engineers, Ltd, the inventor of RSV technology, to enable high and reliable performance of its modular plants.
The plant is designed to accommodate the NGL-rich gas in Pecos County. The plant's low capital and operating expense, coupled with ultra-high NGL recovery, allows Caprock to offer more favorable processing terms to the producers that supply gas to the plant.
