DALLAS, Texas - Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. on Oct. 18 announced it 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 that 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.
