HOUSTON, Nov. 25 -- Regency Energy Partners LP, Dallas, will build Phase 2 in its expansion of the Logansport gathering system in North Louisiana, the company announced last week. Construction will begin early next month and target second-quarter 2010 for completion.
The $40 million expansion will move gas gathered from production in DeSoto Parish, La., to Regency’s gathering system. The project also includes construction of an associated amine treating plant.
Regency will install 4.5 miles of 10-in. OD gathering lines, route 7.5 miles of 12-in. OD pipe through more than 17 sections of dedicated acreage in DeSoto Parish, and will add 3.2 miles of 24-in. OD pipe to connect into Regency’s 24-in. Logansport Phase 1 expansion.
The company will also install a gas-treating plant with inlet capacity of up to 300 MMcfd.
In addition to the Phase 2 project, Regency will increase to 24 in. OD the previously announced 20-in. OD, 17-mile Logansport expansion. That project will interconnect with CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission’s Line CP.
Regency’s Logansport system will then accommodate 450-485 MMcfd, said the company announcement, along the corridor that crosses the Gulf South East Texas lateral, as well as the proposed Energy Transfer Tiger Pipeline (OGJ, Nov. 2, 2009, p. 11).
Regency is also in the process of increasing the Logansport system’s incremental interconnect delivery capacities to Tennessee Gas Pipeline and to Louisiana Intrastate Gas by about 100 MMcfd and 30 MMcfd, respectively.
In September, Regency along with Alinda Capital Partners LLC and GE Energy Financial Services announced plans to build a $47 million pipeline extension of the Haynesville expansion North Louisiana to increase capacity on the Regency Intrastate Gas System.
The extension—called the Red River lateral—is adding about 100,000 MMbtu/day of capacity to the Haynesville expansion, bringing total project capacity to about 1.2 bcfd (OGJ Online, Oct. 28, 2009).
