In the article “Consol-Noble JV to Build Marcellus Dry Gas Pipeline” (see Shale Daily, May 29), it was incorrectly reported that a 24-inch diameter dry natural gas pipeline in West Virginia would be completed in six to nine months. The joint venture plans to begin construction of the pipeline in six to nine months, and the time to build and complete the pipeline would be an additional six to nine months. NGI’s Shale Daily regrets the error.

Although renamed, Kinder Morgan’s El Paso Natural Gas Co. (EPNG) unit is on track to put in service next year a 60-mile, 36-inch diameter natural gas pipeline in Arizona, connecting the EPNG southern system near Tucson to the Mexican border under the new name of the Sierrita Lateral Project (formerly Sasabe).
Plains All American Pipeline LP (PAA) is constructing the Cactus Pipeline, a 310-mile, 20-inch diameter crude oil pipeline from McCamey to Gardendale, TX. It is expected to enter service during the first quarter of 2015. The partnership said it has a long-term agreement for a majority of the pipeline’s capacity and is talking with other potential shippers. The pipeline is expected to cost $350-375 million and transport both sweet and sour crude oil from the Permian Basin to the PAA/Enterprise Products Partners Eagle Ford Joint Venture (Eagle Ford JV) Pipeline. The Eagle Ford JV Pipeline directly serves the Three Rivers and Corpus Christi markets and can supply the Houston-area market through a connection to the Enterprise South Texas Crude Oil Pipeline. Crude oil delivered on Cactus will have access to rail loading capacity at PAA’s Gardendale station and access to the Eagle Ford JV barge dock facility in the Corpus Christi area. Initial capacity will be about 200,000 b/d.

Penn Virginia Resource Partners LP (PVR) has begun service on a new 30-mile, 24-inch diameter trunkline serving Marcellus Shale producers in north-central Pennsylvania with 750 MMcf/d of capacity.

A 10-inch diameter natural gas gathering pipeline owned by Copano Energy LLC ruptured several miles north of Alice, TX, Thursday afternoon. There were no injuries or damage to property in the rural area except for a small grass fire, Copano spokesman Craig Brown told NGI. The pipeline was moving less than 5,000 Mcf/d of gas at the time at less than 500 psi operating pressure. A small amount of production from the field being served by the line is shut in. An investigation is to be conducted into the cause of the explosion, Brown said. Alice is 239 miles southwest of Houston.
