Nexen Opens New Gas Compression Station

Nexen opened the Tsea Compression Station in the Horn River Basin near Fort Nelson as part of their Canadian shale gas operations. The Tsea Compressor Station located 80 km northeast of Fort Nelson, British Columbia, started production on September 21st, 2012. The facility compresses and dehydrates gas from shale gas wells. This gas is pipelined to third-party processing facilities where carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide are removed to meet specifications for domestic gas usage.

Tsea has an initial capacity of 150 million cubic feet per day (mmcf/d) of raw natural gas and enables Nexen to boost total production capacity to 175 mmcf/d from 50 mmcf/d. The facility compresses and dehydrates gas from shale gas wells. This gas is pipelined to third-party processing facilities where carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide are removed to meet specifications for domestic gas usage.

The station is currently fed from one 18-well production pad. The compressor station is designed to produce gas from the area for over 50 years. The project was conceived in January 2010 and design started in June 2010. Major equipment orders were placed in early 2011 and on-site construction began in November 2011.
