Williams starts up Echo Springs expansion

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 14
-- Williams Partners LP, Tulsa, has begun operations on the fourth cryogenic processing train (TXP4) at its Echo Springs natural gas processing plant in Carbon County, Wyo.

The TXP4 plant adds about 350 MMcfd of processing capacity and 30,000 b/d of NGL production, doubling Echo Springs's capacities in both cases.

Although currently gathered volumes exceed 475 MMcfd, Williams expects this to grow with producers’ drilling plans. This expansion, said the company, provides the ability to process gas that is now bypassing the plant along with the ability to process expected future increases in third-party gas production.

Construction began on the expansion in second-half 2009 and was placed into service nearly 2 months ahead of schedule and “significantly under budget,” according to Williams.

With this expansion, Williams’ Opal and Echo Springs processing plants in Wyoming have a combined inlet capacity of more than 2.1 bcfd of gas and 130,000 b/d of NGL production capacity.

Williams says it owns “large-scale midstream assets” concentrated in major producing basins in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, the Gulf of Mexico, and the Marcellus shale in Pennsylvania.
