HAVEN, Kan. (AP) — A Texas company plans to build a new multimillion-dollar natural gas processing plant in south-central Kansas.
Tenawa Gas Processing of Houston says it will start construction on the plant near Haven this month. It is expected to employ 12 to 15 people.
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1dHPYv2 ) the new plant uses a process that cools the natural gasflowing through an interstate pipeline and extracts the resulting liquids. Those liquids are processed into different components and sold to various industries.
Company officials say the plant will process 1.3 billion cubic feet of gas a day.
The plant's location near Haven is a junction of three different pipelines that bring gas from the Oklahoma Panhandle, northern Oklahoma and Texas.
