Enterprise Products' second 300 mmcfd cryogenic processing train in Yoakum, in Lavaca County, has come online. Capacity is now 600 mmcfd at the plant and the company has the ability to extract 74,000 b/d of NGLs. The first Enterprise Yoakum processing train came online in May of 2012.
The latest announcement includes the second train and brings capacity to two-thirds of what is ultimately planned. When completed the facility will have total capacity of 900 mmcfd.
“Like the Eagle Ford Shale play itself, our Yoakum natural gas facility continues to exceed expectations and provide Enterprise with new growth opportunities,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Enterprise’s general partner. “Based on the operating results we’ve seen from the first train which began service in May 2012, we expect the second and third trains to perform above their original design capacity, giving us the confidence to pursue additional processing commitments for all three plants.”
