Tidewater Midstream & Infrastructure Ltd., Calgary, has let a contract to the Canadian subsidiary of WorleyParsons Ltd. to build a sour gas processing plant near Grande Prairie, Alta.

As part of the contract, WorleyParsonsCord Ltd. will provide fabrication and construction services for Tidewater’s 100-MMcfd Pipestone sour, deep-cut gas plant with acid gas injection, which also will have the capability to process 20,000 b/d of NGLs, the service provider said.

WorleyParsons disclosed neither a value of the contract nor a timeframe for its work on the project.

Tidewater, which is developing its Pipestone gas storage operations near Grande Prairie, recently received approval from the Alberta Energy Regulator to build and operate a 120-km natural gas pipeline connecting Tidewater’s Brazeau River complex to TransAlta Corp.’s generating units at Sundance and Keephills, the operator said.

The pipeline—which will have initial capacity of 130 MMcfd and may be expanded to about 440 MMcfd—is supported by a 15-year take-or-pay commitment from TransAlta and is scheduled to begin construction in late November to meet a projected in-service date in third or fourth-quarter 2019.

Tidewater also said on Oct. 30 that it has executed a total of six crude oil infrastructure agreements to date to deliver crude oil to six end markets, including direct to three unidentified refiners.
