The Phoenix Park Valve Station (PPVS), located at the Point Lisas Industrial Estate in Couva, is owned and operated by NGC. It is a highly critical facility in NGC’s pipeline system, designed for the collection and distribution of natural gas.
Gas from various sources is blended together at NGC’s Beachfield Valve Station (BVS), located onshore at Galeota. There is also a 24-inch-diameter onshore pipeline, which enters BVS and brings gas from the bpTT slug catcher. Gas is then transported to PPVS via three pipelines (30-inch, 36-ich, and 24-inch/20-inch diameter).
The PPVS facility serves to remove liquid (inclusive of steady state liquids, pig-induced liquid slugs and/or “swept” liquid slugs) from the gas flow, and route the gas to Phoenix Park Gas Processors Limited (PPGPL) via a 48-inch-diameter pipeline. The PPVS also receives dry (residue) gas from PPGL via a “blending manifold” at Phoenix Park Intermediate Station (PPIS). The PPIS facilitates the distribution of gas to the end users at the Point Lisas Industrial Estate, and to the electric power generation plants in Port of Spain, California and Penal, among other commercial customers.
In the event that PPGPL cannot meet the demand of NGC’s customers, there is the option to bypass this plant and to flow on “wet gas bypass” directly to the end users. In the latter scenario, adequate contingency measures are employed to ensure obligations for supply to customers are met.
