Regency Energy Partners Plan $40 Million Expansion

January 2010 Vol. 237 No. 1

Regency Energy Partners plans to construct Phase II of its Logansport Gathering system in north Louisiana.

This $40 million expansion will transport gas gathered from a producer’s dedicated acreage located within DeSoto Parish to Regency’s Logansport gathering system. The project includes construction of an associated amine-treating facility.

“Including this project, Regency and the Haynesville Joint Venture will have $790 million invested in gathering and transportation projects in the Haynesville Shale to meet producers’ demands in this prominent play,” said Byron Kelley, chairman, president/CEO of Regency. “This fee-based project further strengthens our position in the Haynesville Shale, which is a key component of our growth strategy.”

Regency will install 4.5 miles of 10-inch gathering lines, route 7.5 miles of 12-inch pipe through more than 17 sections of dedicated acreage in DeSoto Parish, and will add 3.2 miles of 24-inch pipe to connect into Regency’s 24-inch Logansport Phase I Expansion. Regency will also install a gas-treating facility with capacity of up to 300 MMcf/d. Completion is scheduled for second quarter 2010.

Regency is also increasing the diameter of the previously announced 20-inch, 17-mile Logansport Expansion pipeline to 24 inches. The Logansport Expansion pipeline will interconnect with CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission’s Line CP. This will provide Regency’s Logansport system with 450-485 MMcf/d of capacity along the corridor that crosses the Gulf South East Texas Lateral, as well as the proposed Energy Transfer Tiger Pipeline. Regency is in the process of increasing the Logansport System’s incremental interconnect delivery capacities to Tennessee Gas Pipeline and to Louisiana Intrastate Gas by 100 MMcf/d and 30 MMcf/d, respectively.
