Lucid Energy Group LLC, Dallas, will install a 200-MMcfd cryogenic gas plant about 10 miles southeast of Big Lake in Reagan County, Tex., a site the company says is in the “heart of the Permian’s Midland basin.”
Manufactured by UOP Russell, Tulsa, the plant will bring Lucid’s total processing capacity in the Midland basin to 320 MMcfd. It operates a combined 120 MMcfd of processing at its Silver and Munson plants, in Sterling and Irion counties, respectively.
The Big Lake plant will connect to Lucid’s 450-mile pipeline system and process gas produced from the Wolfcamp shale in Irion, Reagan, and Crockett counties. Construction is under way with the plant expected to be in service in first-quarter 2015.
Big Lake will be the third gas processing plant Lucid has built since the company started operating in the Permian basin less than 2 years ago. Big Lake will connect to Lucid’s existing high-pressure gas header system, which reaches across five counties in the Midland basin.
Lucid Energy formed in 2011 with equity support from EnCap Flatrock Midstream.
