Targa Resources Corp., Houston, has let a contract to KP Engineering LP (KPE), Tyler, Tex., to build a grassroots cryogenic gas processing unit for subsidiary Targa Pipeline Mid-Continent WestTex LLC.

KPE will provide complete engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services for the plant, including its main 200-MMcfd cryogenic gas processing unit with compression, as well as the balance of plant items and associated infrastructure, the service provider said.

While it disclosed neither a value of the EPC contract nor a precise location for the new plant’s siting, KPE did confirm the project is scheduled to be completed during first-quarter 2018.

Targa, which has yet to release official details regarding the project’s specific location, did tell investors on Jan. 24 that it planned to begin construction soon on a 200-MMcfd plant for its WestTX system that was tentatively scheduled to be completed sometime around yearend 2017.

Further details regarding that proposed WestTX plant, however, have yet to be revealed.
