CenterPoint begins routing for Mississippi Lime gathering system

CenterPoint Energy Field Services LLC (CEFS), an indirect, wholly owned natural gas gathering and treating subsidiary of CenterPoint Energy Inc., has begun initial routing activities for a proposed gas gathering and processing system in the Mississippi Lime area of north central Oklahoma and south central Kansas. The proposed White Eagle Gathering System would include up to 300 miles of high-pressure gas gathering lines and up to 200 MMcfd of processing capacity with amine treating and nitrogen removal, depending on customer requirements.

White Eagle would interconnect to intra- and interstate markets, with NGL deliveries to the Medford Hub in Grant County, Okla. Additional gathering and transportation services, such as low pressure service at producer interconnects, a crude oil pipeline with interim trucking options, or electric service for submersible pumps, could also be provided.

The project is scalable and its final size will depend on producer interest. Contingent on customer commitments, portions of the system could be operational late-2012 or early-2013.

Chesapeake Energy Corp. last week named the Mississippi Lime as one of the plays it would focus savings from reduced dry gas drilling on exploiting (OGJ Online, Jan. 23, 2012).
