Midstream operator hikes NGL takeaway in Texas Panhandle

OGJ editors

Eagle Rock Energy Partners LP, Houston, has amended its long-term NGL marketing agreement with Oneok Hydrocarbon LP to increase Oneok’s volume takeaway commitment from processing plants in the Texas Panhandle.

The amendment increases Eagle Rock's NGL transportation and fractionation capacity by about 58%, said the announcement, to occur in phases that coincide with expansion of its Phoenix-Arrington Ranch plant and installation of its Woodall plant, both in Hemphill County, and serving the Granite Wash play in Hemphill and Wheeler counties.

OGJ data shows the Phoenix-Arrington plant with 40 MMcfd of inlet capacity at yearend 2010 (OGJ, June 6, 2011, p. 88). The new $67-million Woodall plant will have an initial inlet capacity of 60 MMcfd (OGJ Online, Aug. 1, 2011). Oneok Hydrocarbon is a unit of Oneok Energy, Tulsa.

Joseph A. Mills, Eagle Rock's chairman and CEO, said that upon installation of the Woodall plant, expected to be completed in first-quarter 2012, Eagle Rock will have processing capacity of about 190 MMcfd serving the Granite Wash.

Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.
