Copano to take South Texas gas plant to 1 bcfd

Copano Energy LLC, Houston, will add 400 MMcfd of cryogenic processing capacity at its Houston Central complex, in Colorado County, Tex., west of Houston, the company reported. It said the decision responds to “continuing producer demand” in the liquids-rich Eagle Ford shale.

At the same time, Copano reported a new long-term fee-based gathering and processing agreement with a major Eagle Ford producer—which neither the announcement nor a Copano spokesperson identified. Combined with previously announced producer commitments, the agreement will support the expansion.

This recently announced expansion will bring total cryogenic processing capacity at Houston Central to 1 bcfd. Copano estimates anticipated capital spending for the expansion and associated facilities to reach about $190 million, with expected in-service of mid-2014.

An initial 400 MMcfd cryogenic processing expansion at Houston Central, announced in 2011, is to start up in first-quarter 2013 (OGJ Online, Apr. 19, 2011).
