Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news from Dallas-based Energy Transfer, which just announced completion of its on-budget, ahead-of-schedule Lone Star Express Pipeline Expansion. The new 352-mile line will flow NGLs from Winkler Co., Texas, and connect to the company’s 532-mile Lone Star Express bound for Energy Transfer’s monster Mont Belvieu storage and fractionation complex along the Gulf Coast. The expansion will add another 400 MBPD of capacity to the system’s existing 507 MBPD of mixed NGLs transported from processing plants in the Permian and Delaware. As part of the Lone Star project, Energy Transfer plans to construct an eighth fractionator at Mont Belvieu, which will increase total plant fractionation capacity to more than 1 MMBPD. Completion is expected next summer.
Energy Transfer Partners is a company engaged in natural gas and propane pipeline transport. It is organized in Delaware and headquartered in Dallas, Texas. It was founded in 1995 by Ray Davis and Kelcy Warren, who remains Chairman and CEO.
