Duke's New Plant Serving SE TX Production Growth

Duke's New Plant Serving SE TX Production Growth

Growth in southeast Texas drilling operations prompted Duke Energy Field Services to build a new gas processing plant in West Beaumont, TX, which went on line last week. The plant has capacity of 100 MMcf/d.

"Duke Energy Field Services built this new plant to offer producers additional processing services to keep pace with the increased supply," said Jim Mogg, Duke Energy Field Services president. "This area continues to have significant growth in drilling, largely as a result of new technology producers are using to give them higher success rates."

The cryogenic plant is on the Centana Intrastate Pipeline system and will offer state-of-the-art recoveries of gas liquids. Combined with its 200 MMcf/d processing plant at Port Arthur, TX, Duke Energy Field Services has 300 MMcf/d of processing capacity in southeast Texas. The company said it is continuing to expand its Gulf Coast gathering and processing capabilities. In April the company acquired the 85 MMcf/d capacity Haynesville, LA, processing and fractionation facility and related liquids pipelines from Dynegy Midstream Services.

In early April, Duke Energy Field Services began deliveries into the Perryville Hub in northern Louisiana through a new 4.5-mile pipeline and the addition of 7,500 hp of mainline compression. The expansion allows for an incremental 100 MMcf/d of capacity into major transmission pipes serving the Midwest and Northeast markets. The company also expanded its South Texas gathering and processing capabilities by acquiring the 90-miile Brooks-Hidalgo Pipeline gathering system.
