Energy Transfer and Regency Energy announced construction of a second Mont Belvieu fractionation facility at a cost of $350 million. The plant will complement infrastructure being built to support the Eagle Ford Shale, Permian Basin, and Woodford Shale. Lone Star NGL, the official name of the Energy Transfer and Regency Energy partnership, will build a second 100,000 barrel per day natural gas liquids (NGLs) fractionation plant to support growing demand from liquids-rich areas in Texas and Oklahoma.
