DEFS completes Colorado gas plant expansion


The Roggen natural gas plant northeast of Denver, Colo., completed an expansion that doubles its processing capacity to 58 MMcfd, said owner Duke Energy Field Services (DEFS), a 70:30 joint venture by Duke Energy Corp. and Phillips Petroleum Co.

DEFS said the upgrade increases capacity near gas reserves in Weld County, Colo. The company owns and operates six plants and more than 2,200 miles of gas gathering pipelines in the area.

"With natural gas and NGL prices near all-time highs, we are expecting producer development activity to continue at very high levels over the next few years," said Michael J. Bradley, senior vice president of DEFS' Northern division. "We are already looking at several additional 'bolt-on' expansion projects to our facilities in the Denver-Julesburg (D-J) basin in anticipation that even more capacity will be needed to meet the needs of our producer customers."

Natural gas liquids production from the plant is expected to increase to more than 4,300 b/d from 2,100 b/d. NGL produced at the Roggen plant will be delivered into Phillips Pipe Line Co.'s NGL pipeline, which runs from the Powder River basin of Wyoming to the Texas Panhandle (OGJ Online, July 19, 2000).
