In 2012, Ardent completed all electrical and instrumentation construction and pre-commissioning efforts for a new-build 60MMSCFD gas plant near Jal, NM.
This eight month project included installation of 96 sections of 480V electrical equipment, 24 sections of 5kV power distribution equipment, 8,000 linear feet of cable tray, 272,000 linear feet of power and control cable, 42,000 feet of conduit, termination of 156 5kV conductors and 23,512 600V conductors, 40,000 feet of grounding conductor, 26,700 feet of trenching, installation of 896 instruments, installation of 18,500 feet of heat trace cable and 7,500 feet of process tubing.
Ardent peaked at 126 personnel on site. The scope included two site-built MCC/Control rooms, and a truck loading control and measurement building. The work was executed through the summer in southeastern New Mexico and was completed with no recordable injuries.
A small Ardent crew remained within this facility following construction turnover, and now supports the facility owner with maintenance and small capital projects.
