Under the contract, UOP will supply and install the modular cryogenic, dehydration, acid gas removal, inlet/residue compression, control system, flare system and site electrical equipment.

The company will also supply site utility systems for office, control room, motor control center, and compressor requirements.

The new plant, which will commence production in the fourth quarter of 2015, can process 200 MMSCFD of natural gas.

Additionally, the UOP’s pre-engineered modular gas processing plant will allow quick construction and installation, enabling PennTex to start up on schedule.

PennTex and UOP have also signed a letter of intent to purchase third 200 MMSCFD cryogenic plant.

Expected to be delivered in November 2015, the cryogenic plant will be used in one of Penntex’s midstream platforms.

UOP Gas Processing and Hydrogen business senior vice president and general manager Rebecca Liebert said: "UOP’s modular gas plant and EPC services will allow PennTex North Louisiana to begin producing NGLs quickly, accelerating revenue capture.

"UOP’s modular approach also provides high-quality construction and on-schedule delivery and start-up."
