PPGPL currently owns and operates three (3) natural gas processing facilities (Phase I, Phase II & Phase III Gas Plants) capable of processing up to 1.95 billion standard cubic feet per day (bscfd) of natural gas, together with related facilities.
The natural gas processing facility also includes a booster compressor station with a capacity of 42 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) for receipt of associated gas from Petrotrin / Trinmar.
The related facilities include three fractionators (Fractionation 1, 2 and 3) that separate the natural gas liquids (NGLs) into propane and butane (together referred to as LPG) and natural gasoline.
The fractionators are capable of fractionating up to 70,000 barrels per day (bpd) of NGLs produced from the three (3) natural gas processing facilities as well as additional NGLs purchased from the Atlantic facility at Point Fortin.The Fractionator 3 also includes a butane splitter with a capacity of 7,000 barrels per day (bpd) for splitting of mixed butane into normal and iso-butanes.
Under processing agreements withNGC and Petrotrin, PPGPL processes (extracts the NGLs from) all of the natural gas used in Trinidad, with the exception of the supply to the Atlantic facilities. Under separate agreements, PPGPL transports, fractionates, stores and delivers to customers the NGLs extracted at the Atlantics T1, T2/3 and the T4 facilities.
Since the start up of its facilities in June 1991, PPGPL has produced and sold over 85 million barrels of propane, butane and gasoline and established itself as the preferred regional supplier of LPG with over 50% market share of the Caribbean market. PPGPL received the Du Pont Excellence Award for Marketing Excellence in 1997.
