American Midstream begins operations at Longview rail facility

American Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: AMID) has begun operations at its East Texas rail facility, allowing for receipt and delivery of natural gas liquids (NGLs) and condensate by rail to the Longview processing plant, located in the Cotton Valley shale play in Gregg County, Texas.

The rail terminal, served by the Union Pacific railway via the Gladewater Station, includes more than 8,900 feet of lead track with the current capacity for more than 50 general-purpose or pressure railcars. The facility has capability for the receipt and delivery of up to 4,500 barrels per day of on-spec and off-spec NGLs, including purity products and condensate, with similar capabilities for rail-to-truck transloading. Future plans include additional receipt and delivery capabilities and sufficient track on the 400-acre site for unit trains.

The East Texas rail facility is adjacent to American Midstream’s Longview operations, which include two cryogenic processing plants; a fractionation unit; a stabilization unit, product storage tanks; NGL sales pipelines; and a two-bay, semi-automated truck rack equipped to receive on-spec and off-spec NGLs and condensate. The facility is also located near several crude oil and refined products terminals.
