Seven Generations – Cutbank De-Ethanizer Addition

Gas Liquids Engineering Ltd. (GLE) completed EPCM services on the installation of a third de-ethanizer train at the Cutbank Gas Plant. The NGL stream generated by the Karr 07-11 condensate stabilization trains was re‑routed to this new process train. The outputs from this new de-ethanizer train will be a sellable high vapour pressure “propane plus” (C3+) liquids product and a rich overheads gas stream.

Existing systems at Cutbank that were impacted by this project:

  • Inlet Separator (Hydrocarbon Liquid Outlet)
  • Train 1 and 2 De-ethanizer Feed Separators (Hydrocarbon Liquid Outlets)
  • NGL Sales (Storage and Truck-out)
  • Recycle Compression
  • High Pressure Flare
  • Fuel Gas
  • Instrument Air
  • Hydrocarbon Drain
  • Electrical Loading and Infrastructure

New equipment that was installed installed:

  • New Process Inlet Separator
  • Repurposing of existing pipeline installed at Cutbank Gas Plant
  • New dedicated inlet pig receiver
  • Installation of one (1) new de-ethanizer train, not equipped with refrigeration or reflux system
  • New feed drum and three (3) feed pumps operating in 3 x 50% configuration
  • Installation of four (4) additional 60,100 US Gallon bullets
  • Installation of two (2) new truck-out stations
  • Installation of additional independent Heat Medium package
