The Sand Hills NGL Pipeline is online and taking NGLs from the Permian & Eagle Ford regions to fractionation facilities in the Gulf Coast and near Mont Belvieu.
The pipeline is 720 miles and runs from West Texas, near Midland, into South Texas on to Mont Belvieu. The pipeline will have initial capacity of 200,000 b/d and could be expanded to 350,000 b/d if needed.
“Sand Hills and Southern Hills provide a solution to the critical need for vital transportation capacity from key liquids producing regions,” said Wouter van Kempen, CEO.
DCP has a total of 1.3 bcf/d of processing capacity in the Permian and will have 1.2 bcf/d of capacity in the Eagle Ford once the Goliad Plant is completed in early 2014.
The Sand Hills in service was announced in conjunction with the in service of the Southern Hills NGL pipeline that moves liquids from the Midcontinent region to the Gulf Coast.
