Enbridge to build East Texas cryo plant

Enbridge Energy Partners LP, Houston, will build a 150-MMcfd cryogenic natural gas processing plant near Beckville in Panola County, Tex., the company has announced, estimating the cost of the project at $140 million.

Construction will begin in late 2013 with start-up by early 2015.

Adding the Beckville plant will expand the company’s processing capacity in the Cotton Valley and Haynesville shales to about 820 MMcfd, it said. The plant will connect with existing NGL infrastructure in the area.

Enbridge’s East Texas system includes about 3,900 miles of gas gathering and transportation pipelines, about 200,000 hp of compression, eight gas-treating plants and, with the addition of the new Beckville plant, six gas processing plants.

Other gas plants in Enbridge’s East Texas system are the Avenger plant in Marion County, Grapeland in Houston County, Henderson in Rusk County, Longview in Gregg County, and Carthage (idled), in Panola County.
