Valerus Gets Work on Two Stations
Crestwood adding Compression in West Virginia
Valerus Field Solutions has received a US$62 million contract to provide engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of two compressor stations in Doddridge County, West Virginia, for Crestwood Midstream Partners.
The Marcellus Shale facilities, both rated at 120 MMcfd (3.4 x 10.6 m3/d) are due completion in 2014.
Heath Deneke, president of Crestwood’s natural gas business unit, said, “These projects, currently under construction, are essential to our infrastructure development plans in the very active Marcellus, connecting it to the market.”
The turnkey compressor stations will together include more than 35,000 hp (26 MW) of compression, inlet separation and filtration, gas dehydration, power generation and distribution, and station instrumentation and controls.
Kentz Corp. Ltd., the holding company of the Kentz engineering and construction group, completed its US$435 million purchase of Valerus Field Solutions earlier this month. The remaining Valerus contract services and after-market service businesses have been renamed Axip.
