Devon to expand Woodford shale gas plant

Devon Gas Services LP, Norman, Okla., has awarded a construction contract to KBR, Houston, to expand Devon’s 200-MMcfd gas processing plant in Canadian County, Okla.

KBR will provide preconstruction services and installation to expand the cryogenic gas plant in the Woodford shale by 150 MMcfd, which Devon told OGJ will start up in second-quarter 2013.

The Devon expansion promises yet more liquids moving to Mont Belvieu on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Earlier this week, Energy Transfer Partners LP and Regency Energy Partners LP, both of Dallas, announced that their joint venture Lone Star NGL LLC will build a second 100,000-b/d fractionator at Mont Belvieu (OGJ Online, Feb. 16, 2012).

That announcement said the second fractionator is to handle increasing barrels from the partnership’s Woodford shale, Eagle Ford shale, and Permian basin infrastructure, including Lone Star’s 570-mile West Texas Gateway NGL pipeline. That pipeline and the first 100,000-b/d fractionator at Mont Belvieu are to be completed in first-quarter 2013. The second fractionator announced yesterday will be in service in first-quarter 2014.
