HOUSTON, June 15 -- Regency Gas Services LLC, Dallas, will invest $125 million to expand and extend its intrastate natural gas pipeline in northern Louisiana.
Regency will loop 40 miles of its 200-mile pipeline line with 24-in. pipe. It will increase the compression on the line by 10,000 hp.
Construction has begun on the Haughton-to-Sibley, La., portion of the project, scheduled for completion this month.
Regency also will extend the pipeline 80 miles to intrastate markets and interstate pipelines in Louisiana, including Columbia Gulf's pipeline near Winnsboro, La. These projects and the additional capacity will be available by yearend.
Anadarko Petroleum Corp. signed a contract for firm transportation of its gas from Vernon field in Louisiana through the extended line. Regency is in advanced negotiations with other large gas producers.
