Regency Plans Series Of Expansion Projects

February 2011, Vol. 238 No. 2

Regency Energy Partners LP plans a series of expansion projects along its rich gas gathering system in south Texas to meet increasing producer demand in the Eagle Ford Shale.

Upon completion, these projects will provide an incremental 200 MMcf/d of capacity for the south Texas gathering system, allowing Regency to provide its customers with more robust gathering services.

The expansions include: the construction of a 45-mile pipeline to loop a portion of the existing south Texas gathering system from western Webb County, TX, to new facilities near I-35; the installation of 20,000 horsepower of compression; the installation of an additional 200 MMcf/d of dehydration capacity; and an additional 1,500 Bbl/d of stabilizer capacity.

The expansion projects are scheduled to be completed in May 2011.
