By: WP – Iron Horse Midstream has announced its plans to construct a new, 200 million ft3/d gas cryogenic processing plant on its existing 120-acre complex located in Grady County, Oklahoma, in the heart of the SCOOP/STACK/Merge play in the Anadarko Basin. The new plant, which is expected to be operational in late 2023, will increase Iron Horse’s total natural gas processing capacity in the region to 425 million ft3/d, with the capability for further expansion as driven by customer needs.
“As production activity in this highly prolific area continues to increase, installing our second train is a natural and necessary growth opportunity. Expanding our Iron Horse processing complex provides capacity exactly where it is needed – in the core of the basin, where we have access to numerous high-quality, residue gas markets,” said Tim Roberts, Iron Horse CEO. “We understand that our success is driven by the success of the companies we serve; this expansion is a testament to our continued focus on providing reliable, customized, and flexible midstream solutions to our producer customers.”
Iron Horse Midstream currently owns and operates a newly-built, highly efficient natural gas gathering and processing asset in Oklahoma’s SCOOP/STACK/Merge play. In an excerpt from a press release in 2018 Iron Horse explained that the first phase of the system would consist of more than 100 miles of high- and low-pressure natural gas gathering pipeline, multiple compressor stations, and the Iron Horse cryogenic gas processing plant with the capacity to process 200 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMcf/d). The team at Honeywell’s UOP Russell division designed and fabricated the plant to meet Iron Horse’s requirements for an efficient and predictable installation schedule, reliable runtime, and increased NGL recoveries from the area’s gas stream.
Located in Grady County, the Iron Horse Plant site is designed to accommodate additional expansions that would bring total processing capacity to 600 MMcf/d to serve production growth.
The entire Iron Horse System includes approximately 300 miles of high and low-pressure natural gas gathering pipelines, multiple compressor stations, and the 225 million ft3/d Iron Horse cryogenic gas processing plant.
