HAVEN, Kansas (AP) – A Texas company plans to build a new multimillion-dollar natural gas processing plant in south-central Kansas.
Houston-based Next Generation Processing expects to start building the Tenawa Gas Processing plant near Haven this month. It is expected to employ 12 to 15 people.
The new plant uses a process that cools the natural gas flowing 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.
