Canada's Montney shale to get gas plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 11
-- AltaGas, Calgary, has let a contract to IMV Projects, a Wood Group company also based in Calgary, for the engineering, procurement, and construction management for the $235 million (Can.) Gordondale sour gas processing plant and associated gas gathering.

The 120-MMcfd plant will lie about 100 km northwest of Grande Prairie in the Gordondale area of the Montney shale gas play. It will include deep-cut liquids extraction to recover NGL before the gas enters the sales gas pipeline and will be on stream by fourth-quarter 2012, following regulatory approval.

IMV Projects has been involved with development of the project since its inception, performing the original scoping study and the front-end engineering design, said the company’s announcement. IMV Projects also designed the expansion of AltaGas Ante Creek processing plant, currently under construction, that includes a new amine train, refrigeration, and gathering.
