Player and Company was hired to construct two new natural gas pretreatment valve skids for a liquefied natural gas plant. The skids route the pipeline natural gas through a system of pressure vessels to remove water, carbon dioxide, and other hydrocarbons from the gas before it is turned into a liquid for mass storage. The valve skid frames and piping are constructed with stainless steel for long-term corrosion resistance.
The project included shop fabrication of the skid support frame and piping. The shop assembled skids were transported to the job site where tie-ins were made in the field. 100% of the 621 pipe welds were completed by certified welders, radiographed, and pressure tested prior to system start-up. The fabrication, power and controls for the two skids were all performed by Player and Company employees.
