Enterprise begins production at NGL facility in Texas

HOUSTON, US: Enterprise Products Partners start-up the first train at the partnership’s new cryogenic natural gas processing plant at Yoakum, Texas. This facility has a design capacity of 300 million cubic feet per day and can extract approximately 37,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids (NGL). During the start-up period, the plant will process existing Eagle Ford production in a reduced recovery mode to enable testing of the plant and supporting facilities and make adjustments to plant operations.

Incoming natural gas volumes and recovery per cent at the facility will continue to increase throughout the month of May, with full production from the plant expected by 1 June 2012. Prior to the start-up of the Yoakum plant, Enterprise had been utilizing capacity at natural gas processing plants owned by third parties. Most of these volumes will now be diverted and processed at the Yoakum facility.

“The long-term outlook in the Eagle Ford Shale continues to show growth in rich gas production and Enterprise is well-positioned to help meet the need for midstream infrastructure through the cost-effective expansion of our integrated network,” said A J Jim Teague, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Enterprise.
