In late 2019, a major exploration and production company in Canada asked the Sky Eye Measurement team to produce a turnkey solution for a site in Northern Alberta.

The solution comprised a butane truck offload package (a standard Sky Eye design), a portable butane storage bullet and a butane injection to pipeline blending system with a turnkey motor control centre (MCC) and PLC.

It enabled the client to increase production profits by injecting cost-efficient butane into their production stream.

Sky Eye said: “The client had aggressive timelines for this project; our team kicked off product design in November 2019, fabricated the entire solution in about two weeks, and delivered it to site in early 2020.”

Because of its ability to deliver a solution from concept to delivery – design, engineering, drafting, procurement, fabrication, and commissioning – it said it could meet these timelines without having to rely on any third-party providers: “To facilitate quick turnaround, we leveraged strategic procurement to ensure quick-delivery parts, used one of Sky Eye’s stock designs for the truck offload package to expedite fabrication, and devised a portable storage bullet solution for the client’s site.”

The butane injection solution was a NPSHr, high-head and low-flow pumping system with turnkey metering and flow control system. These applications are technically challenging from a design perspective because of the high volatility of butane.

It concluded: “Our team leveraged their experience in managing volatile LPGs to ensure that the client has a safe, high-functioning solution.”
