Stakeholder Midstream LLC, San Antonio, Tex., made a final investment decision (FID) to install a second treating and processing train (Train II) at its existing Campo Viejo processing plant and gathering system serving San Andres producers on the Northwest Shelf of the Permian basin.
The installation will double the current inlet gas capacity to 160 MMcfd from 80 MMcfd.
Train II, which will support continued development in Yoakum County, Tex., Lea County, NM, and other surrounding counties, will include front-end liquid handling, an amine treater, a cryogenic processing plant, a nitrogen rejection unit, and additional sequestration compression. The company began ordering long-lead equipment items in late summer 2022. Commissioning is expected by January 2024.
The additional capacity and redundancies created by Train II will further reduce methane emissions and result in additional volumes of CO2 being captured and permanently sequestered in Stakeholder’s Pozo Acido well, which recently received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency for its monitoring, reporting, and verification plan.
