Energy Transfer is stepping up to deliver Eagle Ford Shale capacity.  ETP is adding 500 mmcfd of capacity through two pipelines in that originate in Webb County and DeWitt County Texas.

“The 50-mile, 24-inch Dos Hermanas Pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 400 million cubic feet per day. The pipeline will originate in northwest Webb County, Texas and extend to the Partnership’s existing Houston Pipeline rich gas gathering system in eastern Webb County, Texas. The pipeline is expected to be completed by December 2010. As part of the project, approximately 6,000 horsepower of compression will be added to the Houston Pipeline system.”

“The initial phase of the Chisholm Pipeline will consist of approximately 83 miles of 20-inch pipeline extending from DeWitt County, Texas to the Partnership’s LaGrange Processing Plant in Fayette County, Texas. The pipeline will have an initial capacity of 100 million cubic feet per day, with anticipated capacity expansion exceeding 300 million cubic feet per day. The project will utilize existing processing capacity at ETP’s LaGrange Plant. After processing, the residue volumes will be transported on the Partnership’s Oasis Gas Pipeline system. This phase of the pipeline is expected to be in service by the second quarter of 2011.”
