Enterprise Products Partners has announced that service recently began on the third train at its Orla cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Reeves County, Texas. The completion of the final announced processing unit at Orla increases natural gas processing capacity at the facility to 900 million ft3/d and allows Enterprise to produce in excess of 140 000 bpd of NGLs. Throughout the Permian Basin, Enterprise now has the capability to process 1.3 billion ft3/d of natural gas and produce approximately 200 000 bpd of NGLs.

“The three trains at Orla that have been brought online over the past year reflect Enterprise’s agility and commitment to providing timely and efficient solutions for facilitating production growth in the prolific Permian Basin,” said A.J. Teague, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner. “And we are not through yet expanding our processing capabilities in the Permian. The Mentone cryogenic natural gas processing facility in Loving County, Texas, which will have the capacity to process 300 million ft3/d of natural gas and extract in excess of 40 000 bpd of NGLs, is on schedule for completion in the 1Q20, and we are actively negotiating contracts with customers to underwrite additional capacity.”

Orla and Mentone extend Enterprise’s value chain in the Permian and Delaware basins, linking customers to the company’s integrated pipeline network, including the recently completed Shin Oak pipeline and the Texas Intrastate natural gas system. In addition, the company’s Mont Belvieu complex, where 300 000 bpd of fractionation capacity is under construction and expected to be available in 2020, as well as an extensive system of Gulf Coast export docks provide unsurpassed access to the most attractive domestic and international markets.
