Delivery on a Compressed Site and Schedule

Kokosing Industrial provided responsive construction services for a cryogenic natural gas processing plant addition.

INSIDE THE PROJECT

Kokosing completed commissioning of a 200 mmscfd cryogenic natural gas processing plant addition within an operating facility.  Our seamless style of working jointly with our affiliate group of companies, allowed Kokosing to self perform the plant’s concrete foundations, structural steel erection, process piping, electrical, instrumentation and controls and process equipment installation construction. Challenges included an extremely compressed work schedule, due to client commitments to supply gas to market; a restricted work area due to the site being located in a remote narrow valley with limited access into the site via a jump bridge we designed and installed; and extremely limited on-site equipment and material laydown.  Along with the construction, our in-house Central Engineering Group provided logistics expediting, BIM, clash detection, and design of various components that supplemented the project team keeping complete control of the project and resources, leading to on-time delivery of the critical plant addition.

WHY IT MATTERS

The Utica and Marcellus shale regions contain some of the most productive and economic acreage in the United States.  Producers continue to capitalize on this by building gas processing facilities in the same region where the productive drilling and gas gathering is occurring.  In the past 2 years, Kokosing has commissioned 1,000 mmscfd natural gas cryogenic processing facilities on-time in the Utica and Marcellus.
