September 23, 2019 [Kallanish Energy] – Enterprise Products Partners last week announced plans to expand and extend its Acadian natural gas system to deliver gas from the Haynesville Shale to the liquefied natural gas market in South Louisiana, Kallanish Energy reports.
The project will include construction of a roughly 80-mile pipeline originating near Cheneyville, Louisiana, on Enterprise’s Acadian Haynesville Extension, to third party interconnects near Gillis, in western Louisiana.
Enterprise said the LNG export market for this region includes design send-out capacity currently operating or under construction of roughly 15 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d).
The new Gillis Lateral specifically will have a capacity of approximately 1 Bcf/d.
As part of the project, Enterprise also plans to increase capacity on the Acadian Haynesville Extension by adding horsepower at its Mansfield compressor station in De Soto Parish, Louisiana.
When completed, the expansion and extension project will increase the Acadian system’s capability to transport Haynesville natural gas production from 1.8 Bcf/d to 2.1 Bcf/d. The project is supported by long-term customer contracts and is expected to begin service in mid-2021.
“The Haynesville region currently produces approximately 11 Bcf/d of natural gas, which is expected to grow to approximately 14 Bcf/d by 2025,” said A.J. “Jim” Teague, CEO of Enterprise’s general partner. “Once this project is completed, our Acadian system will be able to deliver a total of 2.1 Bcf/d of Haynesville production into the LNG market, South Louisiana industrial complex and other interconnects that serve attractive southeastern U.S. markets.”
The Legacy Acadian and Haynesville Extension pipelines are part of the Acadian Gas Pipeline System, which includes approximately 1,300 miles of natural gas pipelines.
Enterprise’s 357-mile Haynesville Gathering System has a capacity of roughly 1.3 Bcf/d and can treat up to 810 million cubic feet per day of natural gas.
