Southcross starts construction on new Eagle Ford pipeline

Southcross Energy Partners LP has begun construction on the $125 million, 300-MMcfd Webb pipeline in the rich gas area of the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas.

The 24-in., 94-mile pipeline will extend from Webb County near Encinal, Tex., to McMullen County near Tilden, Tex. At Tilden, the Webb line will connect to the extension of Southcross’ existing McMullen pipeline, on which construction of a 5-mile extension has also begun.

The project’s objective is to move rich gas to Southcross’ processing and fractionation complex near Corpus Christi, Tex.

Pipeline engineering, procurement, and right-of-way purchasing is under way and the pipeline is expected to be in service in this year’s fourth quarter.

Southcross said construction of the pipeline is anchored by a commitment of rich gas volumes onto the Southcross system. Advanced discussions are under way with other producers regarding additional rich gas volumes.

“We believe this pipeline is a key step in the next stage of Southcross’ growth that we expect will also include additional assets in the Eagle Ford,” said Corey Lothamer, vice-president, gas marketing and supply of Southcross’ general partner.
