Kinder Morgan – Engineering for Plant Expansion
Matrix PDM Engineering provided engineering and design to add (15) new produce and feedstock tanks at the Kinder Morgan Galena Park terminal.
The tanks included (4) 200,000 bbl feed tanks, (3) kerosene tanks, (3) naphtha tanks, (2) diesel tanks, and (3) AGO tanks, each 100,000 bbl. This expansion allows NGL condensate liquid to be piped inbound by a 20-inch pipeline to the feed tanks, pumped through two splitter units for NGL processing to the respective storage tanks, and then exit the facilities via a manifold and pumps to a UG pipeline to the facility battery limit where the product is then transferred to existing storage tanks in the facility.
Pre-commissioning and commissioning included instrument calibration, coordination of utilities, functional testing, performance testing, and site acceptance.
