DES PLAINES, Ill., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UOP LLC, a Honeywell (NYSE:
HON) company, announced today that it was selected by Crosstex Processing
Services, LLC, a subsidiary of Crosstex Energy, L.P., to provide technology
and equipment to extract valuable petrochemical feedstocks from natural gas
liquids (NGLs) derived from shale gas.

Honeywell's UOP will build and install UOP Russell fractionation equipment
that is designed to extract ethane and propane – highly in demand as
petrochemical feedstocks for producing ethylene and propylene, two building
blocks for plastics – from mixed natural gas liquid streams. UOP will provide
Crosstex with a full turn-key solution that includes on-site installation and
start-up services for the UOP Russell equipment as well as other related
equipment and infrastructure.

"UOP is committed to providing efficient technologies that support the
continued growth of shale gas processing and that enable producers to
profitably fractionate individual NGL components from mixed natural gas liquid
streams," said Rebecca Liebert, vice president and general manager for gas
processing and hydrogen at Honeywell's UOP. "UOP Russell modular equipment
allows producers to upgrade their NGLs into valuable energy products and
petrochemical feedstocks with reduced field construction time and lower
overall cost."

UOP will provide Crosstex with UOP Russell deethanizer and depropanizer
fractionators that are capable of handling a 100,000 barrel-per-day mixed
natural gas liquids stream for the extraction of ethane and propane. The
equipment will be installed at the Crosstex facility in Plaquemine, La., with
start-up scheduled for 2014.

UOP offers key technologies, including UOP Russell modularized packaged
plants, to enable shale and conventional natural gas producers to remove
contaminants from natural gas and recover high-value natural gas liquids used
for petrochemicals and fuels. UOP Russell modular equipment is factory-built
to maintain tight quality control standards and significantly reduce
construction time and costs.

Following Honeywell UOP's 2012 purchase of a majority stake in Thomas Russell
Co., the UOP Russell product line has offered technologies that allow shale
and conventional natural gas producers to remove contaminants from natural gas
and recover high-value natural gas liquids used for petrochemicals and fuel.
UOP Russell offerings are part of Honeywell UOP's Gas Processing and Hydrogen
business, which offers technology, equipment, and materials to treat and
process natural gas as well as to purify hydrogen used in refineries.

In addition to UOP Russell NGL separation technology solutions, Honeywell's
UOP has marketing alliances with Twister B.V., and Ortloff Engineers, Ltd.,
for natural gas separation technology to recover NGLs. UOP also has gas
processing technologies to extract contaminants such as water, mercury, sulfur
and carbon dioxide from raw natural gas. UOP developed and manufactures UOP
Separex™ membrane systems and UOP Amine Guard™ FS solvent systems for acid gas
removal as well as UOP MOLSIV™ adsorbent materials for water and mercury
removal.

UOP LLC, headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, USA, is a leading
international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts,
adsorbents, process plants, and consulting services to the petroleum refining,
petrochemical, and gas processing industries. UOP is a wholly-owned subsidiary
