Enterprise Holds Open Season For Panola NGL Pipeline Expansion

February 2013, Vol. 240 No. 2

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. affiliate Panola Pipeline Company LLC held a binding open season that ended Jan. 11, seeking shipper support for a proposed expansion of the Carthage-to-Lufkin segment of its NGL pipeline system.

The Panola Pipeline is a 181-mile pipeline that originates near Carthage in Panola County, TX and supports the Haynesville and Cotton Valley oil and gas production areas. The pipeline extends to destination points at Mont Belvieu in Chambers County, enabling shippers to access the world’s largest NGL fractionation complex, including facilities owned and operated by Enterprise.

Depending on shipper response to the open season, the Panola expansion project will be designed to accommodate 15,000 bpd of incremental capacity. Achieving the additional capacity would involve installing pumps and related equipment. The additional capacity would be available mid to late second quarter of 2013.
