Jacobs selected by Keyera for phase two of Wapiti Gas Plant expansion
DALLAS, /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. was awarded a contract for engineering services for Keyera's Wapiti Gas Plant Phase Two expansion, adding 150 million cubic feet per day of sour gas processing to the plant currently under construction near Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada. Keyera estimates construction of this second phase to be complete mid-2020 at a total installed cost of $150 million.
Jacobs engineered the Wapiti Gas Plant Phase One and will now design a second train, expanding Keyera's capacity in the liquids-rich Montney region of northwestern Alberta. Investment is growing in this area as Keyera develops critical assets and infrastructure contributing to the economic sustainability of the region.
"Keyera operates one of the largest independent midstream energy companies in Canada, is a cornerstone client for Jacobs in Alberta, and we are committed to supporting their Wapiti Development project," said Jacobs Energy, Chemicals and Resources President Vinayak Pai. "This contract builds on Keyera's already impressive gas gathering and processing business in the midstream industry in Canada."
At full build-out of both phases of the project, the new facility is expected to process up to 300 million cubic feet of sour gas and 25,000 barrels of field condensate per day.
Jacobs will support this project from its Calgary office, which represents the company's center of excellence in North America for natural gas liquids, gas treating and processing and sulfur solutions, delivering innovation and value for its upstream and midstream clients.
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.
Industry Trends: Norway targets global LNG market

Regional Focus: Challenges of scaling up Africa’s LNG production
Several gas projects are underway in Africa, but they continue to be constrained by inadequate infrastructure, slow finance mobilization, lack of security and uncertainty over hydrocarbon regulations that are casting doubt on the outcome of the continent’s drive to meet its anticipated 128% gas demand increase by 2040.
GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
