Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. Signs Additional Gas Gathering and Processing Agreements in Texas
Nov 13 14
Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. or ' ETP' has signed additional gas gathering and processing agreements with producers in the Eagle Ford and Eaglebine production areas of south and southeast Texas. To facilitate these agreements, ETP has begun construction on two new cryogenic gas processing plants and additional gas gathering pipelines. The East Texas Plant, a 200 million cubic feet per day cryogenic gas processing plant, will be constructed and installed east of the Partnership's La Grange Plant. The new plant is expected to be constructed and placed in-service by the fourth quarter of 2015. The Volunteer Pipeline, as further detailed below, will deliver rich gas to the East Texas Plant for processing with the resulting natural gas liquids and residue gas delivered to Lone Star NGL LLC's pipeline and ETP's Southeast Bossier 42-inch gas pipeline, respectively. The approximate 70-mile, 24-inch Volunteer Pipeline will have an initial capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day that will be expandable to over 400 million cubic feet per day with the addition of compression. The Volunteer Pipeline will originate in eastern Brazos County, Texas at an interconnect with ETP's Southeast Texas Pipeline System, a gas gathering system consisting of over 5,000 miles of pipe and over 80,000 horsepower of compression, and will extend to the Partnership's new East Texas Plant. The pipeline is expected to be constructed and placed in-service by the fourth quarter of 2015. Also in light of ETP's continuing success in securing long-term, fee-based gathering and processing agreements along ETP's REM system, the Partnership has started construction of a new 200 million cubic feet per day cryogenic gas processing plant in the Eagle Ford production area that is expected to be online by June of 2015. This plant will be fully subscribed once it is on line and will deliver the residue gas into ETP's HPL intrastate pipeline system and the natural gas liquids into Lone Star NGL LLC's pipeline system. By the end of 2015, ETP expects to have in service approximately 1.8 billion cubic feet per day of cryogenic processing capacity in the Eagle Ford and Eaglebine plays in south and southeast Texas with expected NGL barrels recovered reaching 250,000 barrels per day. The East Texas Plant, REM Eagle Ford Plant II and Volunteer Pipeline projects, estimated to cost between $375 and $410 million in aggregate, will add to ETP's ever-growing presence in south and southeast Texas where ETP has already spent in excess of $3 billion on pipelines, plants and associated infrastructure in the last several years, resulting in strong distributable cash flow to the Partnership.
