Pennwest – Minnehik Buck Lake FEED
Gas Liquids Engineering Ltd. (GLE) provided engineering services for a FEED study on the installation of acid gas injection at the Minnehik Buck Lake gas plant. The acid gas injection equipment would replace the existing sulphur plant used to convert the hydrogen sulfide in the acid gas stream to sulphur. Acid gas injection was being pursued because the sulphur plant was exhibiting serious corrosion issues and furthermore, the plant was approaching the grandfathering expiration, at which point the plant sulphur recovery regulatory requirements would have become much more stringent. Acid gas injection rates would vary between 1.2 MMSCF/d to 1.6 MMSCF/d.
