Balmorhea, Texas Diamond Processing Complex

Project Summary

Saulsbury was awarded the contract to construct three cryogenic processing plants at our client’s Diamond Processing Facility in Balmorhea, Texas, each designed with a capacity of 200 MMSCFD. These facilities feature industry-leading cryo plant technology that allows for higher recovery of valuable ethane, propane, and heavier components which maximizes natural gas liquids production.


Scope of the Project

  • Inlet, outlet, and BOP utilities sized for 1.2 BCFD
  • Two — 7,500-BBL slug catchers (48″ pipe, 6 fingers each, 750′ long)
  • Three Opero 200-MMSCFD SRX cryo plants
  • Three — 1,000-GPM amine treaters
  • Three — 5,000-HP residue compressors
  • Six CAT 3616 residue compressors
  • Two — 7,500-bbl/day condensate stabilizers
  • 12 electrical PDC buildings

Goals and Achievements

  • Over 700 peak manpower
  • All three trains were completed on time and on budget
  • Once the project was completed, Saulsbury documented over 1 million safe work hours without a recordable or time-lost incident.

Key Quantities

  • 13,056 cubic yards concrete
  • 1,779 tons of structural steel
  • 159,339 linear feet of pipe
  • 34,135 linear feet cable tray
  • 240,098 feet of conduit
  • 1,098,076 feet wire and cable
