Enterprise Products Partners plans to build a new cryogenic natural gas processing facility and associated natural gas and natural gas pipeline infrastructure.
The new project will facilitate the continued growth of NGL-rich natural gas production in the Delaware Basin of West Texas and southeastern New Mexico.
The processing plant will have capacity of 300 million cubic feet per day and the capability to extract more than 40,000 barrels per day of NGL. However the site for this has yet to be determined. It is expected to begin service in the second quarter of 2018.
A.J Teague, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner says: ‘This project, which complements our ongoing growth in the region, is the third cryogenic natural gas processing plant Enterprise has announced in less than 24 months.’
In addition to the new facility, a rich natural gas gathering line, residue pipeline to Waha and an NGL pipeline to Enterprise’s Mid-America Pipeline system. They will integrate with the rest of the company’s Delaware Basin infrastructure.
