Granite Wash gas plant starts up

Eagle Rock Energy Partners LP has started up its 60-MMcfd cryogenic processing plant in Wheeler County, Tex., in the Granite Wash play (OGJ Online, Mar. 7, 2013).

The plant includes the associated Mills Ranch compressor station and lies on a 50-acre site owned by Eagle Rock in the center of the company’s existing high-pressure gathering system.

Eagle Rock also built other pipeline enhancements in the immediate area for product gathering, transportation, and marketing to and from the Wheeler plant. The supporting infrastructure and plant site were designed to accommodate one or more additional expansions.

With the completion of the plant, Eagle Rock said it will have more than 500 MMcfd of high-efficiency cryogenic processing capacity in the Granite Wash play. Construction of the plant, associated gathering and pipelines cost about $65 million, said the company.
