ETP announces two Eagle Ford gas pipelines

HOUSTON, Oct. 19 -- Energy Transfer Partners LP will build two new natural gas pipelines, Dos Hermanas and Chisholm, in the Eagle Ford shale. The 50-mile, 24-in. OD Dos Hermanas Pipeline will move 400 MMcfd between northwest Webb County, Tex., and ETP’s existing Houston Pipeline rich-gas gathering system in eastern Webb County. The partnership expects the pipeline to be complete by December and will add roughly 6,000 hp of compression to the Houston Pipeline System to handle the extra natural gas.

The initial phase of the Chisholm Pipeline will consist of about 83 miles of 20-in. OD line extending from DeWitt County, Tex., to ETP’s LaGrange processing plant in Fayette County, Tex. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 100 MMcfd, with anticipated expansion to more than 300 MMcfd. The project will use existing processing capacity at ETP's LaGrange plant, with residue volumes transported on its Oasis Gas Pipeline System. ETP expects this initial phase of the pipeline to enter service by second-quarter 2011.

ETP has entered into multiple long-term agreements with shippers to provide transportation services from the Eagle Ford shale using the new pipelines.

Enterprise Products Partners last month announced agreements and construction to transport and process Anadarko’s Eagle Ford natural gas production (OGJ Online, Sept. 22, 2010).
