Enterprise Products Partners L.P. recently began operations at its new Bulldog cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Panola County, Texas, the company has announced. The facility has the capability to process 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of natural gas and extract up to 12,000 barrels per day (BPD) of natural gas liquids (NGL).
Bulldog, which was previously referred to as the “Panola 3 gas plant” has been combined with Enterprise’s existing Panola cryogenic facility. This gives the company the capacity to process a total of 320 MMcf/d and produce in excess of 18,000 BPD of NGLs within the region.
“The addition of this new natural gas processing plant demonstrates Enterprise’s commitment to investing in the world-class natural gas shale in East Texas and Louisiana”, the company said in a statement.
The Bulldog plant is currently running near 100 per cent of its capacity and is integral to helping facilitate continued growth of natural gas production from the Cotton Valley and Haynesville formations in East Texas and Louisiana, Enterprise said.
It describes it as “a strategic complement to the Enterprise value chain as NGLs produced at the plant will be transported on the Panola Pipeline to Mont Belvieu, Texas for fractionation services”.
Furthermore, residue gas from the tailgate of the Bulldog plant will have connectivity with Enterprise’s North Texas Intrastate pipeline system, along with other major pipelines and markets in the East Texas – Carthage area.
The Bulldog plant fully integrates Enterprise’s existing Fairplay gathering system with the BTA gathering system, which was acquired in 2017.
AJ Teague, Chief Executive Officer of Enterprise’s general partner, said: “The addition of this new natural gas processing plant demonstrates Enterprise’s commitment to investing in the world-class natural gas shale in East Texas and Louisiana.”
