Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. (JEC) was awarded a contract for engineering services for Keyera's Wapiti Gas Plant Phase Two expansion, adding 150 million cubic feet per day of sour gas processing to the plant currently under construction near Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. Keyera estimates construction of this second phase to be complete mid-2020 at a total installed cost of $150 million.
Jacobs engineered the Wapiti Gas Plant Phase One and will now design a second train, expanding Keyera's capacity in the liquids-rich Montney region of northwestern Alberta. Investment is growing in this area as Keyera develops critical assets and infrastructure contributing to the economic sustainability of the region.
"Keyera operates one of the largest independent midstream energy companies in Canada, is a cornerstone client for Jacobs in Alberta, and we are committed to supporting their Wapiti Development project," said Jacobs Energy, Chemicals and Resources President Vinayak Pai. "This contract builds on Keyera's already impressive gas gathering and processing business in the midstream industry in Canada."
At full build-out of both phases of the project, the new facility is expected to process up to 300 million cubic feet of sour gas and 25,000 barrels of field condensate per day.
Jacobs will support this project from its Calgary office, which represents the company's center of excellence in North America for natural gas liquids, gas treating and processing and sulfur solutions, delivering innovation and value for its upstream and midstream clients.
Keyera services oil and gas producers in Western Canada and markets natural gas liquids such as propane, ethane, butane, condensate and iso-octane to markets throughout North America.
