Water Transfer Facility

Nameplate Capacity

To support an increase in the water gathering infrastructure, Keystone provided the engineering, design, and analysis necessary to increase the throughput and capacity as well as mitigate corrosion and improve control. The scope of work included the redesign the pump suction headers to
accommodate 75,000 BPD of throughput, the addition of a third water transfer pump with recommendations to increase the current capacity another 50%, replacement of process header piping with internally plastic coated piping to mitigate corrosion, and the addition of two connections to the discharge pump header.

Additionally, the scope included modifying the inlet headers from two separate pipelines with automated control valves and individual flow meters to allow for flow control into the facility as well as the modification of the existing control systems architecture to accommodate the additional valves and instrumentation.
