NET Midstream to extend Eagle Ford shale gas pipeline

NET Midstream’s wholly owned subsidiary Eagle Ford Midstream LP will build a 105-mile, 24-30-in. OD extension of its existing natural gas pipeline. A long-term gas transportation agreement with an affiliate of Anadarko Petroleum Corp. will anchor the expansion.

The extended pipeline will transport residue gas from Western Gas Partners LP's Brasada gas processing plant in LaSalle County, Tex., to interstate and intrastate pipelines at the Agua Dulce hub in Nueces County, Tex. The first phase of the expansion will enter service in December, with completion by April 2013.

The Eagle Ford Midstream system currently consists of 55 miles of 16-in. OD pipeline anchored by long-term commitments from producers in LaSalle and McMullen Counties and delivers pipeline-quality gas to NET's LaSalle Pipeline and Williams’ Transco Pipeline near Tilden, Tex., in McMullen County. The LaSalle Pipeline, a 53-mile, 16-in. OD pipeline completed in 2009, provides the full gas supply requirements for a 200-Mw electric power plant in Pearsall, Tex.

Howard Energy Partners last week acquired natural gas gathering assets in South Texas from Meritage Midstream Services (OGJ Online, Mar. 15, 2012).
