BCCK Holding Company (BCCK), provider of engineering, procurement, fabrication and field construction services, has been awarded an EPC contract to improve overall project economics at a cryogenic gas facility in the Marcellus-Utica Basin, in south-eastern Ohio, USA.

Drawing upon its vast experience with cryogenic gas processing and natural gas liquids (NGL) extraction, BCCK developed a simple and effective modification that will improve on the existing cryogenic plant design and equipment, increasing propane recovery and associated revenue in the process. The project will utilise a skidded BCCK patent-pending design, which will be available to enhance propane recoveries at many of the existing 200 MMSCFD gas subcooled process (GSP) facilities operating throughout the US.

Brian Petko, senior vice president of engineering, BCCK, says, “BCCK is further expanding our portfolio in natural gas cryogenic processing with the addition of this patent-pending technology that enhances recoveries at existing GSP cryogenic facilities. We are excited to be working with one of the premier midstream groups in the Marcellus-Utica Basin, who is our latest client desiring higher realised revenue from their product. We were ultimately selected due to our overall process design and flexibility of offering.”

The full EPC project will draw upon all of the BCCK Holding companies: BCCK Engineering for detailed engineering and design; NG Resources for fabrication; and NGF Construction for field installation.
