HOUSTON, Nov. 19 -- DCP Midstream has requested a nonbinding expression of interest for its proposed DCP Sandhills Pipeline. The 130,000-b/d NGL pipeline will extend more than 700 miles from West Texas to fractionation and storage facilities along the Texas Gulf Coast including Mont Belvieu.
Sandhills Pipeline will service NGLs produced from the Avalon shale in West Texas and the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas, helping relieve capacity constraints.
DCP expects Sandhills to enter service in 2013, with expansion possible to meet customer needs. Expressions of interest must be submitted by Dec. 9.
Chesapeake Energy Corp., Devon Energy Corp., EOG Resources Inc., and Concho Resources Inc. are among the companies active or holding acreage in the Avalon shale.
