HOUSTON, Sept. 22 -- Enterprise Products Partners LP announced 6-year term agreements with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. to provide comprehensive natural gas transportation and processing, and NGL fractionation and transportation services for Anadarko's growing liquids-rich natural gas production in the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas.

Enterprise will construct a new 17-mile, 20-in. OD natural gas gathering pipeline originating at Anadarko's central production facilities in Dimmit County, Tex., and interconnecting with Enterprise's existing South Texas pipeline system. Enterprise expects the new pipeline to be in service late-October.

Current processing capacity at Enterprise's South Texas facilities is 1.5 bcfd. An additional 600 MMcfd will be available mid-2012 with the completion of a recently announced cryogenic gas processing plant in Lavaca County, Tex.

Enterprise earlier in September entered a 10-year firm transportation agreement with EOG Resources Inc. for the latter’s Eagle Ford production. The agreement included construction of a 140-mile, 350,000 b/d crude oil pipeline (OGJ Online, Sept. 13, 2010).

About 100 rigs working in the Eagle Ford shale have drilled more than 175 wells to date, according to Enterprise, with roughly 150 additional wells in various stages of drilling and completion. Total current production from the play is estimated at about 300 MMcfd natural gas and 40,000 b/d crude oil and condensate.
