Northstar Signs Deal for 10 MMScfd Liquefier

Northstar has signed a deal with New Jersey Natural Gas to supply a 10 MMScfd liquefier at the existing Howell LNG Facility. Northstar has selected a Cosmodyne nitrogen recycle liquefier for the project. The link for Cosmodyne’s press release is below.

Rice Energy Interconnects for Spectra Energy

Northstar is providing engineering, procurement, fabrication and construction services to Spectra Energy for three Rice Energy interconnects in the Marcellus Shale region. Each station is designed for a maximum flow rate of 600 MMScfd.  Two of the stations are being designed to accommodate a future, second 600 MMScfd M&R station, which will allow for a full flow rate of 1.2 BCFD.


Northstar is wrapping up the engineering phases and the stations are currently in production at Northstar’s manufacturing shop. The first station is scheduled to ship at the end of September with commissioning planned for the end of this year.


400 MMscfd M&R Station for Blue Racer Midstream, LLC.

Northstar recently designed, manufactured, and tested a 400 MMscfd Metering and Regulating Station (M&R) for Blue Racer Midstream, LLC. The M&R building, measuring 28′ W x 49′ L, contains dual 12″ ultrasonic meter runs and dual 12″ flow control and over pressure protection runs. At the end of August, the building will be transported to the site location to begin installation. Northstar has also pre-fabricated the site’s headers (24″) and risers at its Methuen, MA manufacturing facility which will also ship with the building.

The field effort at the site is already underway with Northstar providing construction and project management services for the interconnect. The M&R building has an expected commissioning date of mid-November.


Northstar would like to thank our valued client Blue Racer Midstream for the opportunity to work on this project.

Please stay tuned for additional pictures and updates for this and many other Northstar projects.

Northstar Transports a 1 BCFD Metering and Regulating Station for Ohio Valley Midstream


Williams Content Image 2Ohio Valley Midstream (a Williams company) placed into service the Oak Grove interconnect facility off of their midstream pipeline system. Northstar designed, built, and installed the Oak Grove metering and regulating facility, with a design flow rate of up to 1 BCFD.

The interconnect consists of two facilities that were completely pre-fabricated at Northstar (by “complete” we mean that even the lights in the building turned on before it left our parking lot). The first building consists of two 12” ultrasonic meter runs, with room for a future, third run. This metering building measures 26’W x 50’L.

The second building consists of two 12” regulator runs, with space for a future, third run. The regulating building measures approximately 26’ W x 36’ L. Both buildings were designed according to company standards with a Northstar modular approach, made for over-the-road transport.

As always, a special thank you to our valued client.
