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.
