I don't see the Saulsbury Industries plant in that spreadsheet. From KFYR:
Texas based company building a Natural gas processing plant near Watford City is looking for North Dakota workers starting in 2019. Saulsbury Industries says they'll need laborers, welders, pipe fitters and electricians in March.From the company's website:
Saulsbury secures design and build award of second cryogenic processing facility in North Dakota for Midstream Client Plant in Watford City, ND. This marks Saulsbury’s 54th cryogenic construction project.
ODESSA, TEXAS– October 29, 2018 – Saulsbury was recently awarded a contract to engineer, procure, and construct a cryogenic processing facility in North Dakota’s Williston Basin for one of the largest midstream companies in North America.
This facility, designed with a capacity of 150 MMSCFD, will be Saulsbury’s second project with the client in this region. Saulsbury will be responsible for the engineering and construction of the processing facility to include liquid stabilization, slug catcher, cryogenic gas processing, and residue gas compression. Work began in August 2018 with the site expected to be in full service on November 1, 2019.As noted above, I don't see a greenfield 150 mmscfd cryogenic plant coming on-line in 2019 in the spreadsheet at the first link above.
Maybe a reader knows?
My hunch: the word is out. North Dakota needs natural gas processing plants so badly, permitting and NDIC involvement is no longer needed. C'mon up; build a cryogenic plant; apply for a permit once it's completed; the NDIC will probably look the other way. Hey, I'm joking.
Later: a reader suggests it is the Kinder Morgan plant that is expanding. See first comment. Much appreciated.
They Say Everything's Bigger In Texas
Just on the other side of the fence separating our apartment complex from the high school - middle school - elementary school complex is the "Multi-Activity Center (MAC)" -- an enclosed football field with artificial turf solely for practicing. No bleachers; no games --just indoor practice when it's too hot to practice outside or too much rain.
This went up in about 18 months. It's incredible. The size is amazing, and it's simply an indoor training facility.
