PCL has a long relationship with Enbridge across North America, performing multiple projects for the company in the United States and Canada. Enbridge’s Beckville Cryogenic Processing Plant processes 150 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of natural gas in Eastern Texas. The facility consists of inlet separation and gas filtration, unstabilized condensate storage, amine treating and regeneration, glycol dehydration, cryogenic NGL recovery, a hot oil system, utilities and a programmable logic controller-based process control and safety shutdown system. PCL’s scope of work consisted of foundations, structural steel, equipment installation, process piping, electrical, instrumentation and commissioning.
The schedule on this project was troubled, with engineering completed eight months behind schedule and in the same month as the initial date of completion. With a little ingenuity, PCL was able to work to keep construction on track despite the delay (as well as the MCC building being delivered behind schedule) to complete the project only three months later than intended. We worked through one of the wettest winters and springs on record in East Texas, with ice and snow preventing work from occurring for more than five straight days during a stretch from January to March. Despite these challenges, PCL achieved schedule targets, while completing the job without a single recordable safety incident.
