Enbridge to build cryogenic plant in Texas Panhandle

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 12
-- Enbridge Energy Partners LP, Houston, will add a cryogenic gas processing plant on its Anadarko natural gas gathering system in the Texas Panhandle, the company reported.

The 150-MMcfd capacity plant, Enbridge said, is needed to handle a resurgence of horizontal drilling the NGL-rich Granite Wash.

Enbridge Pres. Terrance L. McGill said the Granite Wash has been a vertical play in the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma for several years, has seen a large increase in drilling based on “more sophisticated horizontal drilling and completion techniques” and strong NGL prices.

When operating in first-quarter 2011, the new plant will increase the Anadarko system's total processing capacity to more than 650 MMcfd. In addition to this cryogenic plant, the company will also add field compression and pipeline to accommodate increasing Granite Wash gas volumes.

Enbridge's Anadarko System operates gathering and processing the Texas Panhandle including Roberts, Hemphill, and Wheeler counties in Texas and western Oklahoma.
