Energy Transer Partners to build two new Eagle Ford Shale pipelines

Source: Energy Transfer Partners

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. (NYSE: ETP) has entered into multiple long-term agreements with shippers to provide transportation services from the prolific Eagle Ford Shale located in South Texas. To facilitate these agreements, ETP will construct two natural gas pipelines which will serve as expansions to the Partnership’s extensive midstream infrastructure in the region.

Dos Hermanas Pipeline 

The 50-mile, 24-inch Dos Hermanas Pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 400 million cubic feet per day. The pipeline will originate in northwest Webb County, Texas and extend to the Partnership’s existing Houston Pipeline rich gas gathering system in eastern Webb County, Texas. The pipeline is expected to be completed by December 2010. As part of the project, approximately 6,000 horsepower of compression will be added to the Houston Pipeline system.

Chisholm Pipeline 

The initial phase of the Chisholm Pipeline will consist of approximately 83 miles of 20-inch pipeline extending from DeWitt County, Texas to the Partnership’s LaGrange Processing Plant in Fayette County, Texas. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 100 million cubic feet per day, with anticipated capacity expansion exceeding 300 million cubic feet per day. The project will utilize existing processing capacity at ETP’s LaGrange Plant. After processing, the residue volumes will be transported on the Partnership’s Oasis Gas Pipeline system. This phase of the pipeline is expected to be in service by the second quarter of 2011.

“The Dos Hermanas and Chisholm Pipelines are exciting milestones as they mark significant organic-growth projects in the emerging Eagle Ford Shale,” said Brian Beebe, Energy Transfer’s Vice President, Commercial Operations. “These liquid-rich natural gas pipelines are both strategic complements to our existing infrastructure in South Texas and provide unequaled access to numerous processing plants, as well as multiple downstream markets through our Partnership’s extensive intrastate network.”

These combined systems will consist of more than 130 miles of 20- and 24-inch pipe capable of transporting up to 700 million cubic feet of liquid-rich natural gas.
