CALGARY, ALBERTA – August 6, 2020 – CSV Midstream Solutions Corp. (“CSV Midstream”) is pleased to announce the completed expansion of its Karr 6-18 Sour Natural Gas Processing Plant (“Karr”), acquired from Paramount Resources Ltd. in 2019. Karr now has 150 million cubic feet per day of total raw sour gas handling capacity, including 70 MMcf/d of sour raw gas processing, 30,000 Bbl/d of raw hydrocarbon liquids handling capacity, 2,200 Bbl/d of natural gas liquids recovery, and 28,000 Bbl/d of water handling capacity. CSV Midstream completed the construction program with excellent performance in the areas of safety, environment, cost and schedule while concurrently operating the adjacent facility at a reliability level of more than 99%. Start-up of the Karr expansion was completed within one-day of handover to operations, and the plant has operated reliably over the past several weeks.
The expansion included sour gas sweetening, refrigeration, oil treatment, storage, water handling, and utilities including the addition of a digital control system and 15 MW of gas turbine-driven power generation.
“The expansion was successfully completed during a global pandemic under very challenging social and economic conditions and in circumstances that are unprecedented in our industry,” said Daniel Clarke, CEO of CSV Midstream. “The extremely skilled CSV project team, supporting contractors, and field construction management teams performed exceptionally well in these unpredictable times. Our operations group demonstrated outstanding proficiency in transitioning smoothly from construction to full operations within hours of handover. It really is a true testament to the expertise of the team, our collaborative culture, and how the shared values of dedication and professionalism shine through. We are all very proud of this exceptional outcome.”
Jim Riddell, Chairman, President & CEO of Paramount Resources Ltd. commented, “Paramount congratulates CSV in achieving commercial operations at the Karr 6-18 facility expansion. We have been very pleased with the smooth start-up and reliability of the Karr 6-18 plant to date.
