DIGP Connects With Two Gulf Projects

Increased natural gas development in the Gulf of Mexico continues at break-neck speed. Daulphin Island Gathering Partners (DIGP) recently completed two projects that will expand natural gas service in the Gulf.

DIGP, a joint venture comprised of Duke Energy Field Services, MCN Energy, Coastal Dauphin Island Co., (a Coastal Corp. affiliate) and Dominion, began providing a gathering and transportation service on a new lateral which connects four Coastal Oil & Gas main pass area production blocks by way of the Main Pass 265 platform. As new wells are brought on line, the initial output of 25 MMcf/d will grow to at least 70 MMcf/d by the fourth quarter of this year. DIGP delivers the gas to Coden, AL, where Mobile Bay Processing Partners' plant processes, and then redelivers, the gas to interstate markets.

DIGP also commenced service to El Paso Production Co. and Chevron U.S.A. Production from Viosca Knoll Block 385. Block 385 attaches to DIGP's 24-inch pipeline, which transports the gas back to the Mobile Bay Processing partners' plant, and then on to the interstate markets. The Carbonate Trend is the name of the active exploration and production area where the block resides. The area has more than 100 blocks under lease or in development.

DIGP is operated by PanEnergy Dauphin Island, a subsidiary of Duke Energy Field Services.
