Enterprise Products/Duncan Energy To Extend Pipeline Into Haynesville Shale Play

December 2009 Vol. 236 No. 12

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and Duncan Energy Partners L.P. announced plans to extend their Louisiana intrastate natural gas pipeline system into Northwest Louisiana.

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. and Duncan Energy Partners L.P. announced plans for their jointly owned Acadian Gas LLC subsidiary to extend its Louisiana intrastate natural gas pipeline system into Northwest Louisiana to provide producers in the rapidly expanding Haynesville Shale play with access to attractive markets through connections with Acadian’s existing 1,000-mile pipeline system in South Louisiana and nine major interstate pipelines. Known as the Haynesville Extension, this project will have capacity to transport up to 1.4 Bcf/d from the Haynesville area through a 249-mile, 36-inch and 30-inch pipeline that will connect to Acadian’s existing system as well as its affiliated Cypress Gas Pipeline. If additional long-term commitments are received before pipe orders are placed, the capacity of the Haynesville Extension could be increased to 2 Bcf/d. The pipeline is expected to be in service in September 2011.
