Developing unconventional gas (DUG) technologies and building midstream infrastructure are crucial to realize the continued and growing potential of shale plays, according toAudubon Chief Commercial Officer West Hickham. "Cryogenic processing plants cool the natural gas to sub-zero temperatures to condense and capture natural gas liquids (NGLs) for sale. NGLs, such as ethane and propane, are derived from the processing of natural gas.
"NGLs are used by petrochemical companies as feedstocks and by refineries as blending and processing components. Propane is an important standalone fuel," Hickham added. "Many of our clients, and the industry in general, are familiar with our success in creating advanced engineering designs and providing balance-of-plant solutions. Now our flexible cyro gas plant kits round out our offering to reduce gas processing plant building time and maximize plant performance with single-source accountability."
