BENTEK: 70% growth in Eagle Ford NGL production expected over the next two years

Rapid raw-mix production growth in the Eagle Ford is being supported by 2.5 Bcf/d of new regional processing capacity expected to come online by year-end 2013.
Sept. 25, 2012 - PRLog -- EVERGREEN, CO (Sept. 25, 2012) – BENTEK Energy, a leading energy markets information and analytics company, expects raw-mix production in the Eagle Ford to grow more than 70% or 200 Mb/d over the next two years.  To support this growth, BENTEK’s NGL Supply Report states that the third 300-MMcf/d train at Enterprise’s Yoakum cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Lavaca County, TX, is scheduled to begin operating in the third quarter of 2013, boosting capacity to 900 MMcf/d of gas and 111 Mb/d of NGLs.  In addition, the 173-mile extension of Enterprise’s NGL pipeline system from Yoakum to LaSalle County, TX, is scheduled to begin service in the second quarter of 2013 and allow additional raw-mix to flow to Mt. Belvieu, TX, for fractionation.

BENTEK’s NGL Supply Report also reports two new pipelines are being proposed to transport additional raw-mix takeaway capacity from the Eagle Ford and Permian to fractionators in Mt. Belvieu.  The Sand Hills and Lone Star pipelines are expected to provide 320 of Mb/d takeaway capacity out of the Permian and 540 Mb/d out of the Eagle Ford.  Both pipelines are scheduled to start operating in 2013 and will help relieve transportation and gas-processing capacity constraints caused by increasing gas production in these plays.

BENTEK’s NGL Supply Report provides a weekly assessment of U.S. and Canadian raw-mix NGL production, offering the most up-to-date review of raw-mix supply in the marketplace today.  This revolutionary new report bridges the three-month production data gap between Energy Information Administration (EIA) data and current activity, tying natural gas production, ethane rejection and PADD-to-PADD flows to NGL production without a time lag.
