HOUSTON, Dec. 14 -- Regency Energy Partners LP announced a series of expansion projects totaling 200 MMcfd along its rich-gas gathering system in South Texas’ Eagle Ford shale.

The expansions include:

• A 45-mile pipeline to loop a portion of the existing South Texas gathering system from western Webb County, Tex., to new facilities near Interstate 35.

• 20,000 hp compression.

• 200 MMcfd dehydration capacity.

• 1,500 b/d stabilizer capacity.

The capital expenditures related to these expansions are already included in Regency’s previously disclosed 2010 budget and will be funded under its revolving credit facility. Regency expects the projects to be completed in May 2011.

In August, Regency acquired Houston-based field services company Zephyr Gas Services in an effort to expand its natural gas treatment operations in both the Eagle Ford and Haynesville shales (OGJ Online, Aug. 12, 2010).
