Copano Plans Cryogenic Processing Expansion

Copano Energy, L.L.C. plans to add 400,000 Mcf/d of cryogenic processing capacity at its Houston Central complex, located in Colorado County, TX, in response to continuing producer demand in the Eagle Ford Shale play. The expansion will bring Copano’s cryogenic processing capacity at its Houston Central complex to 1 Bcf/d. Anticipated capital spending for the expansion and associated facilities is estimated at $190 million, with an expected in-service date in mid-2014.

Copano also announced execution of a new long-term fee-based gathering and processing agreement with a major Eagle Ford producer, which combined with previously announced producer commitments, will support the expansion. Copano has previously announced plans for an initial 400,000 Mcf/d cryogenic processing expansion at Houston Central, which is expected to be in service in early 2013.
