Midstream operator hikes NGL takeaway in Texas Panhandle

OGJ editors

Eagle Rock Energy Partners LP, Houston, has amended its long-term NGL marketing agreement with Oneok Hydrocarbon LP to increase Oneok’s volume takeaway commitment from processing plants in the Texas Panhandle.

The amendment increases Eagle Rock's NGL transportation and fractionation capacity by about 58%, said the announcement, to occur in phases that coincide with expansion of its Phoenix-Arrington Ranch plant and installation of its Woodall plant, both in Hemphill County, and serving the Granite Wash play in Hemphill and Wheeler counties.

OGJ data shows the Phoenix-Arrington plant with 40 MMcfd of inlet capacity at yearend 2010 (OGJ, June 6, 2011, p. 88). The new $67-million Woodall plant will have an initial inlet capacity of 60 MMcfd (OGJ Online, Aug. 1, 2011). Oneok Hydrocarbon is a unit of Oneok Energy, Tulsa.

Joseph A. Mills, Eagle Rock's chairman and CEO, said that upon installation of the Woodall plant, expected to be completed in first-quarter 2012, Eagle Rock will have processing capacity of about 190 MMcfd serving the Granite Wash.
