Energy Transfer To Build Two Pipelines In South Texas

Posted on

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. has entered into multiple long-term agreements with shippers to provide transportation services from the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas. To facilitate these agreements, ETP will construct two natural gas pipelines which will serve as expansions to the Partnership’s extensive midstream infrastructure in the region.
  The first is the 50-mile, 24-inch Dos Hermanas Pipeline that will have a capacity of approximately 400 MMcf/d. The pipeline will originate in northwest Webb County, TX and extend to the Partnership’s existing Houston Pipeline rich gas gathering system in eastern Webb County, TX. The pipeline is expected to be completed by December 2010. As part of the project, approximately 6,000 horsepower of compression will be added to the Houston Pipeline system.
  The second pipeline, Chisholm, will consist of approximately 83 miles of 20-inch pipeline extending from DeWitt County, TX to the Partnership’s LaGrange Processing Plant in Fayette County, TX. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 100 MMcf/d, with anticipated capacity expansion exceeding 300 MMcf/d. The project will utilize existing processing capacity at ETP’s LaGrange Plant. After processing, the residue volumes will be transported on the Partnership’s Oasis Gas Pipeline system. This phase of the pipeline is expected to be in service by the second quarter of 2011.
