Copano Energy to add 400 MMcfd at Houston plant

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Apr. 19
-- Copano Energy LLC, Houston, will expand processing at its Houston Central plant in Colorado County in response to producer demand in the rapidly developing Eagle Ford shale play. The expansion will consist of a 400-MMcfd cryogenic processing plant that will bring total processing capacity at Houston Central to 1.1 bcfd.

The company anticipates capital spending for the expansion to reach about $145 million with an expected in-service date in early 2013.

Operations at the plant are to coincide with start-up of Copano's firm capacity at Formosa Hydrocarbons Co.'s Point Comfort petrochemical plant under a previously announced NGL fractionation and sales agreement.

Copano Energy is a midstream gas company that operates in Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming, and Louisiana including about 6,400 miles of gas gathering and transmission pipelines, 260 miles of NGL pipelines, and nine gas processing plants, with more than 1 bcfd of combined processing capacity and 22,000 b/d of fractionation capacity.
