EagleClaw Midstream Ventures, LLC, a subsidiary of EagleClaw Midstream Services, LLC (EagleClaw), has announced that the company has commissioned its Toyah I Natural Gas Processing Plant in Reeves County, Texas. The cryogenic plant has the capacity to process 60 million ft3/d of natural gas and serves producers in the Permian’s Delaware Basin targeting stacked pay zones including the upper and middle Wolfcamp, Bone Spring and Avalon shale formations. The Toyah I plant is served by approximately 120 miles of gathering pipeline and four field compressor stations with a total of 11 000 horsepower of low pressure compression

An 18 mile NGL line connects the Toyah I plant to Lone Star’s West Texas Gateway Pipeline, which transports NGLs to the market centre at Mont Belvieu, Texas. Toyah I also is connected to Kinder Morgan’s El Paso 1600 pipeline, which has significant excess capacity available for residue gas. EagleClaw expects to establish an additional connection into ONEOK’s WestTex Transmission system, an intrastate natural gas pipeline system that connects into the Roadrunner Gas Transmission Pipeline (Roadrunner). Phase One of the Roadrunner project is complete and currently serving markets in El Paso, Texas, and Mexico.

EagleClaw also announced that it has purchased a second cryogenic processing plant with the capacity to process 200 million ft3/d. EagleClaw expects to install the Toyah II plant at the same location as customer demand increases. The new state of the art plant was manufactured by Honeywell UOP Russell and provides significant flexibility for various NGL recoveries. Front end engineering is already underway and supporting infrastructure is in place to facilitate rapid installation of the new plant.

“Our goal is to stay a step ahead of our customers’ processing needs and provide the optionality they need to move hydrocarbons to the best possible markets. Bringing the Toyah I plant into service and making plans to install a second plant are important steps in this effort,” said EagleClaw President and CEO Bob Milam.
