WTLPG Expansion II

To protect our clients' interests, images are not taken from the project but are used for graphical purposes only.

Client: ONEOK

Location: West Texas

Start Date: December 2018

Completion Date: April 2020

ONEOK’s West Texas Expansion, originally, included three (3) greenfield NGL pump stations that had an initial capacity of 215,000 BPD, but could be expanded to 600,000 BPD with a station shutdown. Additionally, it included two (2) brownfield stations, which required motor upgrades.

While this project was initially started at another company, Resolute and its team were able to quickly reestablish the project team, including all three discipline specific engineers of record. The project responsibilities included all necessary engineering, design, expediting of ONEOK purchased materials, and construction support for design related issues.

All design work considered ONEOK provided example designs, project safety, quality, constructability, operability, maintainability, schedule and economic requirements, and ensured that the project was designed to all applicable and required regulatory codes and standards.

  • Greenfield Pump Stations
    • Preliminary Design Packages for all Sites
      • The scope for each greenfield station began at the two flanged inlet/outlet valves which are the station ESD valves. From the station ESD, inlet piping will be routed to the pump suction strainers, through all station pumps (in series), through a station control valve, and out of the station.
    • 60% Design / Model Review
    • 90% Design / Model Review
    • IFC Drawing Packages
    • ETAP Modeling (AF, Short Circuit, etc.)
    • Tie-in Scope (two sites included tie-ins to existing facilities)
      • Tie-in scope included all of the necessary piping connections, routing, electricity, and meters required to allow the existing facilities to function in its original function while the new pump stations can operate independently. This included custody transfer meter skids, small volume provers, leak detection meter skids, pressure and flow control valves, and multiple rounds of pipeline control meetings.

  • Geotechnical Results
    • One station had particularly wet and clayish soil where piers would not be desirable. So, this station required the use of spread footers, while all other stations were typically standard using piers.
  • Tie-in Scope
    • Two "greenfield" stations were actually "brownfield" due to the amount of tie-ins to existing pipelines and above-ground station piping.
    • This resulted in a very large amount of tie-in work that required an additional project manager / engineer to manage that scope.
  • Pipeline Interfacing
    • One station was the intersection of two major pipeline assets owned by the same operator. However, both assets are operated by different groups internal to the operator. This was the topic of countless meetings regarding who would have control of what valves to prevent the flow or the lack of flow on each of the given pipelines.
    • After many meetings, this topic was finally escalated to a level much higher than the project itself.
