EagleClaw commissions West Texas gas plant

EagleClaw Midstream Ventures LLC, a subsidiary of EagleClaw Midstream Services LLC, has commissioned its Toyah I natural gas processing plant in Reeves County, Tex. (OGJ, Dec. 19, 2014).

With a gas processing capacity of 60 MMcfd, the cryogenic plant will serve producers in the Permian’s Delaware basin, targeting stacked pay zones including the Upper and Middle Wolfcamp, Bone Spring, and Avalon shale formations, EagleClaw said.

The Toyah I plant is served by about 120 miles of gathering pipeline, four field compressor stations with a total of 11,000 hp of low-pressure compression, and an 18-mile NGL line that connects the plant to Energy Transfer Partners LP-Regency Energy Partners LP joint venture Lone Star NGL LLC’s West Texas Gateway Pipeline for transport of NGLs to the market center at Mont Belvieu, Tex.

Toyah I also is connected to Kinder Morgan Inc.’s El Paso 1600 pipeline, which has excess capacity available for residue gas, according to EagleClaw.

The company said it also expects to establish an additional connection into Oneok Partners LP’s WestTex transmission system, an intrastate gas pipeline system that connects into the Roadrunner gas transmission pipeline project, Phase 1 of which now serves markets in El Paso and Mexico.

Toyah II expansion

EagleClaw also has let a contract to Honeywell UOP LLC, a subsidiary of Honeywell International Inc., to provide technology for an additional gas plant at the Toyah gas processing complex.

Honeywell will provide a 200-MMcfd Honeywell UOP Russell cryogenic gas processing plant (Toyah II) at the complex to meet rising customer demand for various NGL recoveries, according to EagleClaw and Honeywell.

Front-end engineering for the skid-mounted modular plant already is under way, and supporting infrastructure is in place to facilitate rapid installation of the Toyah II plant, EagleClaw said.

The companies disclosed neither a value of the contract nor a timeframe for startup of the new plant.
