Enterprise Increases Capacity of Haynesville Extension Project
Enterprise Products Partners and Duncan Energy Partners have received additional firm transportation commitments from shippers sufficient to support an increase in the capacity of its recently announced Haynesville Extension project from 1.4 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) to 2.1 Bcf/d. As a result, Enterprise and Duncan Energy placed an order today increasing the size of the 249-mile pipeline extension of their jointly-owned Acadian Gas LLC intrastate pipeline into Northwest Louisiana to 42 inches in diameter.
Following its completion, which is expected in September of 2011, the project will provide producers in the rapidly growing Haynesville Shale play with much needed takeaway capacity, including access to more than 150 end-use markets along the Mississippi River corridor between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. In addition, shippers will be able to access a rapid-cycle salt dome storage cavern and have the ability to make physical deliveries into the Henry Hub and benefit from more favorable pricing points. The Haynesville Extension will also allow shippers to reach nine interstate pipeline systems.
