Saulsbury Awarded EPC Contract for Two Cryogenic Processing Facilities in West Texas

Saulsbury | January 18, 2022

Saulsbury Awarded EPC Contract
Saulsbury was recently awarded the EPC contract for the design and installation of two cryogenic processing facilities in the Midland Basin. The facilities, designed with a base-rated capacity of 200 MMSCFD each, mark Saulsbury's 61st and 62nd cryogenic processing facility projects since 2006, representing nearly 11 BCFD of processing capacity, and its 23rd and 24th cryogenic processing facility in the West Texas region.

Saulsbury will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, and construction of the processing facilities that will include amine treating, molecular sieve dehydration, cryogenic gas processing, residue gas compression, nitrogen rejection, slug catching, condensate stabilization, and all balance of plant equipment, utilities, electrical, instrumentation, and controls infrastructure.  Work on this facility started in December with a phased commissioning starting in late 2022.

"This important project will continue to showcase Saulsbury's position as a premier EPC contractor for delivering high-quality, speed-to-market solutions for the midstream gas processing space,Our continued practice of implementing project-specific design innovations and optimization will further strengthen our commitment to delivering one of the Midland Basin's premier facilities for our client."

-Sean Trotter, Saulsbury VP EPC Engineering/Major Projects.

For Saulsbury, this award further solidifies the company's reputation and longstanding history as an industry leader in the oil and gas industry for self-performing the full engineering and construction of cryogenic gas processing facilities. Saulsbury is well known in this industry for its successful project execution and world-class safety performance.

Hilti Launches New Digital Layout Tool to Boost Productivity

Hilti | January 27, 2023

On January 26, 2023, Hilti North America, a provider of innovative tools, software, technology, and services for the commercial construction industry, introduced the PLT 400, a digital layout tool created to help increase the productivity of jobsite layout crews. Single-operator tools like the PLT 400 are vital due to continued labor shortages and jobsite restrictions. This tool improves accuracy and layout speed, features advanced prism tracking and auto-calibration, and requires minimal training. Improved technology, faster layout, and fewer labor hours contribute to a cost-saving and productivity-boosting solution for jobsites. The PLT 400 can lay out digital BIM (Building Information Modeling) designed plans without the time-consuming step of creating points on the plans first. It can also help keep your BIM model up to date during the construction process, contributing to an optimized end-to-end workflow. The company's digital construction software is also compatible with AutoCAD, Revit, and other specialized layout platforms. The layout tool works in tandem with Hilti's entire solutions ecosystem, including ON!Track and the Fleet program. Aside from access to high-performance tools and cutting-edge technology, Fleet customers also receive free verification of tool accuracy, complying with manufacturer specifications and theft coverage to reduce unexpected expenses and financial risk. In addition, the PLT 400 comes with an industry-leading Tool Warranty and is available in the United States and Canada. Michael Haugtvedt, Product Manager at Hilti North America, shared, "We took customer feedback on our previous total stations and addressed those pain points with the launch of the PLT 400." He added, "This camera-based tool has enhanced prism tracking and upgraded communications making sure you stay connected and increase layout productivity on the jobsite, while a built-in calibration module helps ensure your layout is within spec every time you turn the tool on." (Source – PR Newswire) About Hilti North America Based in Plano, Texas, Hilti provides technology to make construction more efficient, sustainable, and safer. The company's products, systems, and services provide construction professionals with innovative solutions with exceptional added value. Its product line includes cordless tools, grinders, drills, saws, fasteners, anchors, and design/layout software and services.

Norwegian Public Roads Administration Chooses Trimble to Manage Asset Lifecycle

Statens vegvesen - Norwegian Public Roads Administration | January 17, 2023

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) recently selected Trimble's AgileAssets, an infrastructure enterprise asset management software to maintain, manage, and operate the country's 10,600-kilometer road network and related transportation infrastructure. The software complements Trimble's Quadri®, a building information modeling (BIM) collaboration solution, which utilizes cloud technology that the NPRA already employs for construction projects. As Norway's road network becomes more complex, the combination of Trimble's Quadri and AgileAssets, will empower NPRA to meet the increasing demands by leveraging connected data to improve asset lifecycle performance, from conception and building to operations and maintenance. Bjørn Laksforsmo, division director at NPRA, states, "Trimble has been heavily involved in the road design and construction process in Norway for years and is a trusted partner in our digital transformation." He added, "Efficiently maintaining our road network and related assets is critical for keeping our citizens safe, maximizing the benefits from our infrastructure investments and meeting the country's evolving mobility needs. With a holistic, lifecycle view of assets and as-built data, we can more efficiently perform preventive maintenance and make better-informed decisions for all of our assets as we plan for the future." (Source – PR Newswire) NPRA’s asset lifecycle management requirement is based on the necessity that all new projects utilize constructible models and a shared data environment. To improve the flow of real-time data across project stakeholders, NPRA started using Trimble's Quadri, which offered constructible models as well as object-based common data environment. Using Trimble's AgileAssets to extend that data to the maintenance and operations phases will provide NPRA with a holistic view of assets, offering a better picture of road objects and conditions for more precise diagnosis and faster maintenance. Integrating Trimble's common data environment and asset management software will also increase the usefulness and accuracy of data throughout the asset's lifecycle, resulting in greater predictability, sustainability, and lower lifetime costs and informing future expansion and improvement decisions. About Statens vegvesen - Norwegian Public Roads Administration Founded in 1864, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration oversees the planning, construction, and operation of the county and national road networks, as well as vehicle inspection, driver training, and licensing. The Public Roads Administration is led by the Directorate of Public Roads, an autonomous body under the Ministry of Transport and Communication.
