ETP, partners evaluating Gulf Coast NGL exports

Energy Transfer Partners LP, Sunoco Logistics Partners LP, and Regency Energy Partners LP are jointly evaluating a project to export NGLs from the US Gulf Coast. A Sunoco Logistics pipeline would connect ETP’s Lone Star fractionator in Mont Belvieu, Tex., to Sunoco’s Nederland terminal.

ETP plans to launch an open season for the project “very shortly” and has targeted an early-2015 in-service date. ETP acquired Sunoco Logistics last year (OGJ Online, Apr. 30, 2012).

ETP and Regency put the 100,000 b/d Lone Star Fractionator I in service in December 2012, taking shipments from the companies’ 209,000-b/d Lone Star West Texas Gateway NGL pipeline, completed earlier that same month (OGJ Online, Dec. 7, 2012). Lone Star expects the Mont Belvieu site’s second 100,000 b/d fractionator to enter service during the fourth-quarter of this year. Lone Star NGL LLC is a joint venture between ETP and Regency.

The 600-MMcfd first train of ETP Jackson County, Tex., gas processing plant entered service yearend 2012. The company expects the 200-MMcfd second train to come on line next month. ETP’s 130-mile Justice NGL pipeline also began operations late last year, connecting the Jackson plant to Mont Belvieu.
