NET MIDSTREAM ANNOUNCES 105-MILE EXPANSION OF ITS EAGLE FORD MIDSTREAM SYSTEM TO THE AGUA DULCE HUB AND FIRM GAS TRANSPORTATION AGREEMENT WITH ANADARKO
Houston, March 23, 2012/ PRNewswire/--NET Midstream ("NET") today announced that Eagle Ford Midstream, LP, (“EFM”),a wholly owned subsidiary of NET, will build a 105-mile, 24”- 30” diameter extension of its existing gas pipeline. The extension will be anchored by a long-term, gas transportation agreement with an affiliate of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (“Anadarko”).
The extended pipeline will transport residue gas from Western Gas Partners, LP’s Brasada natural gas processing plant in LaSalle County, Texas to interstate and intrastate pipelines at the Agua Dulce Hub in Nueces County, Texas. The first phase of the expansion will be placed into service in December 2012, with completion by April 2013.
“In addition to the recently announced expansions of our liquids-handling capacity, this agreement will secure firm pipeline capacity for our residue gas, which is essential in facilitating the continued rapid production growth Anadarko is achieving in the Eagle Ford Shale,” said Danny Rea, Anadarko’s Vice President of Midstream. “NET Midstream’s existing assets in the region make them an ideal partner for us.”
The Eagle Ford Midstream system currently consists of 55 miles of 16” pipeline anchored by long-term commitments from producers in LaSalle and McMullen Counties and delivers pipeline-quality gas to NET’s LaSalle Pipeline and Transco Pipeline located near Tilden, Texas in McMullen County. NET developed, constructed and operates LaSalle Pipeline, a 53-mile, 16” intrastate natural gas pipeline, completed in 2009. LaSalle Pipeline provides the full gas supply requirements for a 200MW power generation facility located in Pearsall, Texas.
“The second phase of Eagle Ford Midstream provides producers and processors with crucial market liquidity for their plant residue and dry gas production,” said Joe Gutierrez, Co-President of NET. “Upon completion of this project, NET Midstream will have invested approximately $250 Million in over 200 miles of pipeline and facilities in the Eagle Ford Shale. We look forward to incremental growth opportunities for our company as the region continues to develop.” For customer inquiries, contact Mike Freeman at (713) 800-1984 or Dick Kruegerat (713) 800-1940.
