HOUSTON, June 14 -- Southcross Energy, Dallas, will build a 200-MMcfd gas processing plant in Refugio County, Tex., to process liquids-rich production from the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas. The new plant will expand Southcross’s processing in the area to 335 MMcfd.

Also to handle rich gas, Southcross is retrofitting and enhancing its Gregory processing plant in San Patricio County to handle 135 MMcfd of rich-gas feed. Southcross’s Ron Bancroft said the plant had heretofore been rated at about 150 MMcfd for much leaner gas. The plant lies about 13 miles east of Corpus Christi near the town of Gregory.

Construction of the Woodsboro plant should be completed in second-quarter 2012, the company said. The plant will be about 25 miles northeast of Corpus Christi near the town of Woodsboro.

Southcross said its processing plants will provide multiple options for residue-gas disposition via various pipeline interconnects and connections to the local industrial market in along the Corpus Christi Ship Channel.

The company operates another plant, near Conroe, Tex., nominally rated at 40 MMcfd.

Southcross is engaged in purchase and sale, pipeline transportation, and gathering and processing of gas in South Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama. In addition to the two current processing plants, it operates more than 2,100 miles of pipeline and gathering and four gas-treating plants.
