Petro-Hunt, has several holdings in the gas processing side of the oil and gas industry. Currently, the company is an owner and the operator of two gas processing facilities.
Pursue Energy Corporation
Pursue Energy Corporation, an affiliate of Petro-Hunt owns and operates twelve (12) ultra deep, high pressure gas wells, related gathering lines and equipment, along with a processing plant in what is known as the Thomasville Field in Rankin and Simpson Counties, Mississippi.
The high sulfur content gas and the well depths and temperatures in Thomasville Field make it unique and unlike many gas fields in the world. The Pursue wells produce from a depth of over 19,000 feet with bottom hole temperatures exceeding 400 degrees Fahrenheit by utilizing a downhole corrosion inhibitor circulation system.. The end result of the produced gas processed at the Pursue Energy plant is sweet natural gas (methane) and elemental sulfur. These products are then sold to available markets. All of this is made possible through state of the art equipment and techniques used in Pursue Energy’s gas production and processing facilities.
Little Knife Gas Processing Plant
Petro-Hunt is an owner and the operator of the Little Knife Gas Processing Plant (Little Knife Gas Plant) west of Killdeer, North Dakota. The Little Knife Gas Plant processes and treats associated gas produced from the Petro-Hunt operated Little Knife oil field in McKenzie, Billings, and Dunn Counties, North Dakota. In addition to treating gas produced from the Little Knife wells, the plant also treats and processes products from third parties who operate oil and gas wells in surrounding Williston Basin areas.
The Little Knife Field and Gas Plant were started in the 1970’s by Gulf Oil Company and acquired by Petro-Hunt in 1992 from Gulf’s successor, Chevron. The plant can process up to 32 million cubic feet of both sweet and sour gas per day. The state of the art equipment at the plant creates such end products for sale as butane, ethane, propane, natural gasoline, Y-grade, elemental sulfur and sweet methane gas.
