Enterprise begins service at natural gas processing plant

Enterprise Products Partners LP has announced that it recently began operations at its new Bulldog cryogenic natural gas processing plant (previously referred to as the ‘Panola 3 gas plant’) in Panola County, Texas, US.

The facility has the capability to process 200 million ft3/d of natural gas, and extract up to 12 000 bpd of NGL. Combined with Enterprise’s existing Panola cryogenic facility, this new plant gives the company the capacity to process a total of 320 million ft3/d and produce in excess of 18 000 bpd of NGL within the region.

The Bulldog plant is currently running near 100% 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. The Bulldog plant is a strategic complement to the Enterprise value chain as the NGL produced at the plant will be transported on the Panola Pipeline to Mont Belvieu, Texas, for fractionation services. 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.

A.J. ‘Jim’ Teague, CEO 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 […] the Bulldog facility, along with other growth projects under construction in the region, aggregates natural gas on the system and creates an opportunity for future expansion of Enterprise’s natural gas value chain from East Texas to the Gulf Coast.”
