DALLAS, Texas – TPF II East Texas Gathering, LLC (ETG) has secured the commitments necessary to construct a gas processing plant (Fairway Gas Plant) in San Augustine County, Texas, which will process natural gas produced from the rich James Lime formation in East Texas. ETG provides gas gathering, transportation, treating and compression services to producers operating in the James Lime, Cotton Valley and Haynesville Shale plays of East Texas.
The Fairway Gas Plant, with a targeted in-service date of Dec. 15, 2013, will recover natural gas liquids from gas produced from the James Lime formation and return the resulting residue gas into ETG’s East Texas Gathering System for delivery into ETG interconnections with Gulf South’s 42-inch pipeline and CenterPoint Energy Gas Transmission’s 42-inch Line CP near Carthage, Gulf South’s 30-inch pipeline at Milam and ETG’s interconnection with the facilities of Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America in Nacogdoches County. Natural gas liquids recovered by the Fairway Gas Plant will be trucked to fractionation facilities located in East Texas, South Louisiana or Mont Belvieu, Texas, for separation into purity products.
The East Texas Gathering System is a 250-mile high-pressure system. It has a design capacity of 1.2 billion cubic feet per day and gathers natural gas produced from the Haynesville, Cotton Valley and James Lime formations in East Texas and North Louisiana. The system transports gas to five interconnections with downstream pipelines on behalf of multiple producers under long-term contracts.
ETG is an investment managed by Tenaska Capital Management, LLC, of Omaha, Neb.
