Keystone provided project management, engineering, and design services for the West Karnes Gas Expansion Project. West Karnes Central Facility’s original processing capacity was 20 MBOPD liquid and 60 MMSCFD Gas. The production forecast for West Karnes indicated that liquid processing capacity was not a concern at the time. However, future compression requirements and the forecast gas throughput exceeded the original capacity of the gas train. The expansion increased the gas train capacity to 100 MMSCFD. The project elements included new gas cooler, two filter coalescers, dehydration system, fuel gas scrubber, and an amine plant.
Keystone’s scope included engineering and design services for the installation of new and relocation of existing equipment, demolition/abandonment, piping, civil/structural, and instrumentation and electrical design.
