Azure Midstream starts up Haynesville gas plant

Azure Midstream Energy LLC, Houston, has started up its 10-MMcfd Fairway gas processing plant in San Augustine County, Tex. A spokesperson for Azure Midstream told OGJ that the plant consists of two 5 MMcfd freon refrigeration plants.

Azure said the plant came into service on Mar. 17 and will recover NGLs from gas produced from the James Lime formation. It will return residue gas into Azure’s East Texas Gathering System (OGJ Online, Nov. 18, 2013) for delivery into interconnections with Gulf South’s 42-in. pipeline, CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission’s 42-in. line near Carthage, Gulf South’s 30-in. pipeline at Milam, and Azure’s interconnection with Natural Gas Pipeline Co. of America in Nacogdoches County, Tex.

NGLs recovered at the Fairway plant will move by truck to fractionation in East Texas, South Louisiana, or Mont Belvieu.

The James Lime formation in the Haynesville shale in East Texas has rich associated gas that requires processing to remove the heavy end of the produced gas stream. The announcement said that olume growth for the central portion of Azure’s gathering system, where many of the company’s customers are drilling, has resulted in the need for additional gathering.

Azure Midstream operates more than 1,300 miles of pipelines, 16,000 hp of compression, 2.4 bcf of gas treating, and natural gas throughput of more than 1.1 bcfd.
