Creating Long Lasting Relationships
When we first bid on the Musreau 1 (six shallow cut processing plants built with used equipment located near Grande Prairie, Alberta) we had no idea that this project would be the start of a long-lasting business relationship with the client. Due to the success of this project, WSP was awarded the Saturn 1 Gas Plant; a greenfield plant also located in Northern Alberta. We were able to transition our project team from Musreau straight over to the Saturn project for successful execution.
We were able to offer our client unparalleled access and availability because our team was based in Calgary, Alberta, where the client was also based. This local perspective, level of accessibility, along with our quality, was recognized and valued by the client.
The Saturn Gas Plant Deep Cut Turbo-Expander Facility was engineered to extract an ethane plus liquid product from third party inlet sales gas. The turbo-expander plant area uses Ortloff proprietary technology – Recycle Split Vapour (RSV) with Carbon Dioxide Control (CDC) – to achieve increased ethane recovery as compared to a conventional Gas Sub-cooled Process (GSP) plant technology.
The success of the Saturn 1 Gas Plant allowed for further opportunities with the client including Saturn 2: a templated version of Saturn 1. Saturn 2 was such a success that the client communicated to the team, “the project has been textbook from start to finish with an incredible safety record and has been completed considerably under budget and five days ahead of the original schedule.”
