It is planning to construct 62 miles of 24-inch diameter and 30-inch diameter pipeline loops and increasing compression horsepower. The expansion is expected to begin service in the first quarter of 2013. Enterprise is currently constructing its Eagle Ford rich natural gas mainline system and associated laterals consisting of about 300 miles of pipeline and representing gathering and transportation capacity of more than 600 MMcf/d (see Shale Daily, Aug. 10).
