Equinox provides its clients with award winning facility designs that exceed environmental industry standards. These sour gas projects were all honored by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) with Responsible Canadian Energy Performance awards. After having designed and constructed more than sixty (60) gas processing trains, Equinox is an industry leader in eliminating emissions in gas processing facilities. Our sophisticated, environmentally friendly designs ensure that emissions are minimized, and regulatory requirements are met or exceeded.
Dawson Sour Gas Plant (120 MMscfd)
CAPP Chairman’s Award
When deciding to construct a 120 MMscfd sour gas plant at its Dawson field operations in northeast British Columbia, it was important to ARC Resources to have the plant designed and constructed as a low emissions facility. Equinox was engaged to design the plant utilizing its expertise to minimize emissions.
Pouce South Sour Gas Plant (60 MMscfd)
Birchcliff Energy is also committed to environmental stewardship which was demonstrated it the design of the Phase I and II of the Pouce South 60 MMscfd sour gas plant. Equinox is proud to have designed the facility.
Debolt Water Treatment Facility
CAPP Environmental Performance
The Debolt Water Treatment Facility (in remote northern Canada) utilizes an unconventional source of saline subsurface water by tapping into the Debolt Aquifer approximately 800 meters below the surface. Water extracted from the aquifer that contains H2S is first treated then placed in a storage facility to be used for hydraulic fracturing purposes throughout the region. Water pipelines then transport water from extraction wells back into the Debolt aquifer. The facility design utilizes a leading edge processing technology which is a proprietary, confidential process.
