Liquids Engineering Ltd. (GLE) is a privately owned engineering firm
providing engineering excellence from our Calgary, Alberta offices since
1987. Occupying over 85000 square feet in our two corporate buildings,
GLE is comprised of over 200 engineers, designers, consultants, and
administrators serving both the Canadian and International EPCM
(Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management) markets.
In addition to general oil and gas project engineering and management
services, GLE has recognized niche strengths in refrigeration, gas
processing, liquids fractionation, amine sweetening and acid gas
injection. We provide highly flexible engineering services that are
truly customized to meet the specific needs of each client.
GLE’s founders include Doug MacKenzie, Jim Maddocks, and Arnie Toews,
who started the company in 1987. At that time, the three of them
already averaged more than a decade of experience in oil and gas and
industrial construction, equipment design, drafting, shop fabrication
and field construction. They had already built facilities and published
technical papers on MDEA sweetening and the use of mixed refrigerants in
gas plant liquids production (see our Publications page).
Their experience included some of the very first designs and uses of
modularized process packages to reduce site-built construction costs,
including packaged refrigeration and amine plants. Many of these
facilities are still in use today, 30 years later, with the designs
often referenced as standard industry designs. On this foundation of
corporate knowledge, GLE has steadily grown and provided engineering
services on hundreds of gas and liquids processing facilities ranging
from the very small, up to 1 BCFD and 58,000 Bbl/day. We are proud of
our heritage in the industry as Canada’s most experienced
privately-owned gas and liquids facilities engineering services
provider, and we are also proud to offer our specialty services both
locally and internationally.
