Project Description

OneOk required the expansion of this NGL liquid processing facility, increasing capacity from 35,000 BPD to 59,000 BPD.  This project had been started but cancelled in 2009 with engineering at approximately 75% complete.  Benham was selected to sort through the volumes of files to determine the relevance, status of design, and project impact the initial design, and was further tasked to revive the project, establish budgets and schedules, and get it moving forward.
