Morton Gas Plant


  • New production was causing sales gas quality to decrease because of higher CO2 content.


  • A new Amine Plant was constructed (by others) to strip the CO2 out of the sales gas stream.
  • Installed a PLC to control the new Amine Plant.
  • Installed a new HMI to allow the operators to interact with the PLC and control process conditions.
  • Installed new SCADA system to allow operators to remotely access the local PLC / HMI and respond to alarm conditions without having to drive to the plant.
  • Added a phone dialer to the SCADA system to alert operators to any alarms or abnormal process conditions.
  • Provided detailed electrical drawings including:
    • PLC drawings


  • Increased product quality.
  • More productive employees.
