Crosstex awards fractionator contracts for La. expansions

OGJ editors

Crosstex Processing Services LLC, a unit of Crosstex Energy LP, Dallas, has awarded a contract to UOP LLC, Des Plaines, Ill., for technology and equipment to extract petrochemical feedstocks from NGLs derived from shale gas.

UOP will install its Russell de-ethanizer and depropanizer fractionators capable of handling a 100,000 b/d of mixed NGLs at Crosstex Energy’s 225-MMcfd gas plant in Plaquemine, La. Start-up will be in 2014.

The project is part of Crosstex Energy’s Phase II of its Cajun-Sibon NGL pipeline extension and fractionator expansion due for start-up late next year (OGJ Online, Dec. 12, 2012).

Included with the new 100,000-b/d fractionator is expansion of the Cajun-Sibon pipeline by 50,000 b/d of raw-make NGL for total capacity of 120,000 b/d and construction of 57 miles of NGL pipelines from Crosstex’s Eunice, La., fractionator, connecting to the new Plaquemine fractionator.
