Gas Processing Operations

Currently Elkhorn operates six (6) processing plants in Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Our objective is to establish operations across the United States. A brief description of each facility follows:

  • Keystone

    A 10.5 MMCFD mixed refrigerant plant with two-tower fractionation that produces propane, mixed butane and natural gasoline. Operations began in 1986 and it is located in Warren, PA 16365. The plant also includes a refrigeration compressor driven by a 750 HP Caterpillar engine, three 30,000-gallon storage tanks, one 12,000-gallon storage tank, one 5,000-gallon storage tank and one 210 bbl condensate tank.  The plant currently processes about 7.0 MMCFD.

  • Roystone

    A 9 MMCFD refrigerated JT plant with two-tower fractionation that produces propane, mixed butane and natural gasoline.  Operations began in 1995 and are located east of Sheffield, PA. The plant also includes an 800 HP Ajax inlet compressor, a 280 HP Ajax refrigeration compressor, five 30,000-gallon storage tanks, one 6,000-gallon storage tank and one 210 bbl condensate tank. The plant currently processes around 7.5 MMCFD.

  • Lewis Run

    A 6 MMCFD straight refrigeration plant located near Lewis Run, PA. Operations began in 1997. The plant produces propane and a butane/gasoline mix, which is trucked to United Refining in Warren. The plant also includes a 600 HP inlet compressor and a 180 HP refrigeration compressor. Also at the plant site are two 30,000-gallon storage tanks and one 210 bbl condensate tank. The plant currently processes about 5 MMCFD.

  • Kane

    A 10 MMCFD straight refrigeration plant with single tower fractionation that produces propane and a butane/gasoline mix. The plant was operational September 2002.  The plant includes two 800 HP Ajax inlet compressors, one 360 HP Ajax refrigeration compressor, three 30,000-gallon storage tanks and one 210 bbl condensate tank. The plant currently processes about 9 MMCFD. The plant is located just outside of Kane, PA.

  • Hurricane Gas Processing Plant, LLC

    A 10 MMCFD plant that is located at Hurricane, W. VA 25526. The plant consists of the process skid with fractionation, 2- 900 HP Electric Inlet Compressor’s, and one 600 HP Refrigeration compressor. The straight refrigeration plant has a single tower fractionation that produces propane and a butane/gasoline mix.

  • Whitetail

    A 7 MMScfd propane refrigeration facility consisting of a single stabilizer producing a y-grade liquid product. Our local fractionators further process this product into propane, butane and gasoline product streams. Onsite compression consists of 2-600 HP inlet units and a 300 HP refrigeration compressor. Hot oil heat medium equipment drives stabilization and glycol processes. Y-grade product storage consists of 2-30,000 gallon bullets and loading/offloading facilities for truck transport .
