Enterprise Products Partners LP has started operations at its new Bulldog cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Panola County, Texas. The facility can 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 (NGLs).
Combined with Enterprise’s existing Panola cryogenic facility, this new plant 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 Bulldog plant is now running at almost 100 percent of its capacity and it’s supporting ongoing natural gas production growth from the Cotton Valley and Haynesville plays in East Texas and Louisiana. NGLs 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, according to the company.
“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,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, chief executive officer of Enterprise’s general partner.
