Crosstex Energy LP, Dallas, will expand in the Permian basin by building gas processing and rich-gas gathering capacity. Included will be treating, processing, and gas takeaway; the project will be fully owned by the partnership and supported by long-term, fee-based contracts, Crosstex said.
The $140-million Bearkat processing complex will be installed near the partnership’s existing Deadwood joint venture in Glasscock County, Tex. (OGJ Online, July 12, 2011). The plant will have initial capacity of 60 MMcfd, increasing Crosstex’s total operated processing capacity in the Permian to about 115 MMcfd. The partnership also will build a 30-mile, high-pressure gathering system upstream of the Bearkat complex to provide additional gathering capacity for producers in Glasscock and Reagan counties.
The entire project is to be completed and operating by mid-2014. Crosstex continues to expand in Howard, Martin, Glasscock, and Reagan counties, the company said.
