Stanley Processing Plant

Designed to remove heavy liquids from gathered gas, the Stanley Processing Plant facilitates pipeline delivery to additional processing locations without liquids forming in transportation lines. After processing, the gas was compressed into the supercritical or dense phase for transportation to Midwest gas markets. The client received higher value for the heavy liquids by capturing them away from processing, plus lowered the cost of transportation  by eliminating the need for liquid handling in the gathering system downstream of the facilities. KAHUNA USA utilizes intelligent designs to benefit our clients and applies efficient engineering methods for Natural Gas Processing.

Caiman Ft. Beeler Processing Plant

Built on a  hill in West Virginia, the Caiman facility involved a tiny footprint due to site constraints. In addition, the complex was required to build in on 10 weeks. KAHUNA USA  designed process equipment in a stacked formation to limit the footprint of the facility and allow further expansion with time. Daily engagement with the client and construction allowed KAHUNA USA to target action items necessary to stay on track, successfully implementing Just In Time Engineering (JIT) to swiftly complete the project.

Battle Ridge Processing Plant

The client needed the inlet facilities operating six months prior to the processing plant coming on line. KAHUNA USA designed standalone inlet facilities remotely located from the balance of the plant to minimize impact on construction. Changes to the inlet facility were incorporated after the plant design was initiated. The result achieved gas flow for the client in the shortest possible time frame.

KAHUNA USA and Tall Oak worked together to get a smaller inlet area online to accelerate gas to market ahead of the full processing facility being online. This provided early revenue to Tall Oak for several months.

This ingenuity exemplifies the agility of KAHUNA USA.

Pipe Rack night

Keystone Sarsen and Bluestone Processing Facilities

Built in Pennsylvania, these facilities had limited access to top gas and liquid markets at the time. Due to constraints on both the gas and liquid takeaway, surplus ethane halted the operations at the facility. KAHUNA USA designed the facility to recover the ethane as an NGL, then used a deetheanizer on the product to recover the ethane. Waukesha was able to utilize the excess ethane as fuel for the compressor engines. The use of pure ethane for compressor engine fuel was a novel concept at the time. KAHUNA USA overcame these challenging limitations to deliver a successful project for the client.
