Enterprise, Enbridge, Anadarko plan Texas Express NGL pipeline

Enterprise Products Partners LP, Enbridge Energy Partners LP, and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. have agreed to design and build an 850-mile natural gas liquids pipeline that extends from Skellytown, Tex., to fractionation and storage facilities in Mont Belvieu, Tex.

The 280,000-b/d Texas Express Pipeline (TEP) will provide additional takeaway capacity to producers in West and Central Texas, the Rocky Mountains, Southern Oklahoma, and the Midcontinent, according to the joint venture, and additional supplies to Gulf Coast petrochemical facilities. TEP can expand to roughly 400,000 b/d given sufficient market interest.

The venture also will build two NGL gathering systems. The first will connect TEP to gas processing plants in the Anadarko-Granite Wash production area in the Texas Panhandle and western Oklahoma. The second will connect the pipeline to Barnett shale processing plants.

Volumes from outside theses regions will arrive on the TEP system via Enterprise’s Mid-America Pipeline assets between Conway hub and Enterprise’s Hobbs NGL fractionation facility in Gaines County, Tex.

Enterprise will build and operate the pipeline, with Enbridge building and operating the gathering systems. The venture expects the pipeline and gathering systems to begin service in second-quarter 2013, subject to regulatory approvals.

Enterprise plans to complete a 75,000 b/d expansion to its Mont Belvieu fractionation facilities by early 2013, bringing total capacity at the site to 450,000 b/d (OGJ Online, June 27, 2010).

The Future of US Refining

When Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
