EnLink expanding Permian gas processing, Louisiana NGL transport

The EnLink Midstream companies, EnLink Midstream Partners LP and EnLink Midstream LLC, are expanding in the Permian basin and South Louisiana.

EnLink will expand its natural gas gathering and processing in the Permian basin by building a 120-MMcfd processing plant and expanding its rich gas gathering system. Production from Devon Energy Corp., partners in EnLink with Crosstex Energy LP, will support the expansion.

EnLink’s Louisiana expansion will be a joint-venture with Marathon Petroleum Corp. to build a 30-mile NGL pipeline extension to Marathon’s Garyville refinery.

EnLink will build the Permian gas processing plant near its existing midstream assets and expects it to be operational second-half 2015, doubling its regional capacity to 240 MMcfd. EnLink agreed as part of the expansion to provide Devon gathering and processing services for more than 18,000 acres Midland basin acres the operator is developing in Martin County, Tex.

EnLink also will build multiple low pressure gathering pipelines and a 23-mile, 12-in. OD high pressure gathering pipeline connect to its previously announced Bearkat natural gas gathering system, with completion expected by first-quarter 2015. The Permian expansion will cost more than $200 million.

EnLink’s 50-50 joint venture with MPL Investment LLC, a Marathon subsidiary, establishes Ascension Pipeline Co. LLC. Ascension will connect EnLInk’s Riverside fractionation and terminal complex, part its Cajun-Sibon NGL system, to Marathon’s Garyville refinery on the Mississippi River, supported by long-term, fee-based contracts with Marathon.

EnLink will manage construction of the pipeline and will operate it upon its first-half 2017 completion.

Devon and Crosstex completed the merger of their midstream assets earlier this year to form EnLink (OGJ Online, Mar. 7, 2014).
