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
