Redcliff Gas Processing Plant at Woodward Powered by Private Electrical System


A Texas consulting company helped with the planning and development of the Redcliff gas processing plant near Woodward, a plant providing natural gas processing services in the STACK play.

The cryogenic natural gas processing plant was built by Canyon Midstream Partners II, LLC based in Houston, but it was Priority Power Management LLC of Midland, Texas that helped provide the end-to-end electric energy solution.

Priority Power worked with Canyon in evaluating potential sites for the Redcliff Plant and making sure there was the availability of sufficient electrical infrastructure capacity to serve the operation. It analyzed the proposed plant and studied the cost of receiving electric service and determined Canyon would be better suited with a private electrical infrastructure system

Canyon retained Priority to implement the solution, and to provide engineering, procurement and construction services to develop an electric high voltage substation and a 6.8-circuit mile primary distribution feeder, as well as interface with the electric utility to negotiate and manage the transmission interconnect.

“Priority’s knowledge and expertise in assessing the various combinations of electric infrastructure and tariff rate options proved to be invaluable in the early planning stages of the project,” said Michael Walsh, president and chief executive officer of Canyon Midstream Partners. “They developed a plan and implemented it with efficiency and high quality to deliver the project under an aggressive project schedule and under budget.”

The project is the latest as Priority Power Management has grown since 2001 to procure and manage nearly $1 billion of annual energy.
