Enterprise starts up second 300-MMcfd train at Eagle Ford plant

Enterprise Products Partners LP has started up a second 300-MMcfd train at the partnership’s Yoakum cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Lavaca County, Tex.

The additional train increases nameplate capacity there to 600 MMcfd, and the plant can extract about 74,000 b/d of NGLs.

EPP also said it is on schedule to bring the third 300-MMcfd train at Yoakum into service in first-quarter 2013, raising NGL production capacity to 111,000 b/d.

To date, EPP has completed construction of about 440 miles of natural gas pipelines as part of its Eagle Ford system that connects to Yoakum and the partnership’s seven other integrated processing locations in South Texas.

Including the 900 MMcfd of anticipated capacity at Yoakum, EPP expects ultimately to offer about 2.4 bcfd of processing capacity for the region. OGJ data show that more than 27.5 bcfd of total gas plant capacity will come into service 2012-14 in the Eagle Ford play (OGJ, May 7, 2012, p. 88).

Construction of a 173-mile extension of the partnership’s NGL pipeline system from Yoakum to LaSalle County, Tex., is also under way and on schedule to begin service in second-quarter 2013 (OGJ, May 7, 2012, p. 104). This project will link to EPP’s recently completed NGL pipeline system that delivers Eagle Ford Shale production from Yoakum to Mont Belvieu, Tex., where Enterprise is building three new NGL fractionators (OGJ Online, Mar. 26, 2012).
