Infrastructure Planned For Eagle Ford Shale Production Area

August 2010 Vol. 237 No. 8

Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP and Southcross Energy, LLC, with its affiliates announced plans to work together to provide infrastructure solutions to natural gas producers in the Eagle Ford Shale production area in South Texas.

Boardwalk will modify an existing section of its subsidiary Gulf South Pipeline’s 30-inch pipeline from Refugio to Fort Bend County so that condensate-rich Eagle Ford Shale gas can be accepted into that pipeline segment. Southcross Energy will connect its existing gathering facilities in South Texas to the newly modified Gulf South pipeline segment so that Eagle Ford gas can then be transported to four Gulf Coast processing plants served by Southcross Energy, including its Gregory Plant near Corpus Christi. Officials anticipate the newly proposed solution to be operational later this year.
