HOUSTON, May 24 -- Hess Corp., Houston, has awarded a contract for detailed design and procurement to Mustang Engineering, a Houston-based Wood Group company, for expansion of Hess’s Tioga natural gas plant in the Bakken oil play in northwestern North Dakota.
The project will expand plant capacity to 250 MMcfd from about 110 MMcfd and install cryogenic capacity for ethane recovery, full fractionation, and NGL sales, according to the Mustang announcement. Engineering design services will be completed in second-quarter 2012.
Mustang said it has previously completed engineering design for Hess on its Elon/Okume project off West Africa and all three expansions of Hess’s ROZ/WBD project in West Texas and New Mexico, including the Seminole gas processing plant.
