Superior Pipeline Co. LLC, Tulsa, is installing a 30-MMcfd cryogenic plant in Kay County, Okla. Superior is a wholly owned subsidiary of Unit Corp., Tulsa.
Superior has signed a long-term agreement with Range Resources Corp. as the initial producer for the plant. Start-up is to occur during second-quarter 2012.
Construction of the plant is “consistent with Superior’s strategic plan” to build greenfield gathering and processing in the Mississippian trend, said Superior Pipeline Pres. Bob Parks. “We are constructing this plant with the flexibility to accommodate future expansions as we contract to receive additional gas volumes in northern Oklahoma,” Parks said.
He said, “This plant, along with our existing assets accessing the Mississippian trend, will bring our overall processing capacity” in the region to more than 100 MMcfd.
