Producer agreement underpins East Texas gas plant expansion

MarkWest Energy Partners LP, Denver, announced last month it had concluded long-term gathering and processing agreements with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. to support a 120-MMcfd expansion of MarkWest’s Carthage East cryogenic processing plant in Panola County in East Texas.

The plant’s expansion had been announced on Feb. 29 during MarkWest’s fourth-quarter 2011 earnings conference call. Company spokesman Matthew Herzog told OGJ the expansion to 400 MMcfd targets start-up early next year.

MarkWest will provide gathering and processing to Anadarko’s liquids-rich development within Panola County. In addition, the Carthage East expansion will add 140 MMcfd to MarkWest’s gathering capacity in East Texas and expand residue-gas outlet capacities by 60 MMcfd, said the company announcement in March.
