Cryogenic Processing Complex in Jal, New Mexico

Project Summary

Saulsbury partnered with a long-time client and the region’s largest privately held natural gas processor to fully engineer and construct four additional cryogenic processing plants at the company’s existing processing complex in New Mexico’s Delaware Basin. Conceptual planning has begun on a sixth cryogenic processing train to be located at this site.

Saulsbury also completed a 60-MMSCFD million standard cubic feet per day natural gas cryogenic processing facility in 2014 and a 200-MMSCFD cryogenic processing facility in 2015 for this client in the Midland Basin, as well as another 200-MMSCFD cryogenic processing facility in 2018 in the Delaware Basin.


Scope of the project

  • One — 200-MMSCFD UOP Russell RSV cryo plant
  • Three — 200 MMSCFD UOP Russell GSP cryo plants
  • One — 200-MMSCFD UOP Russell GSP-to-RSV conversion kit
