Texas firm plans natural gas plant in northern Louisiana May 7, 2014
DUBBERLY, La. (AP) – A Dallas partnership says it will build a natural gas liquids processing plant and pipeline in northern Louisiana.
Regency Energy Partners LP says the project will cost $260 million.
Regency has a refrigeration plant in Dubberly. A news release Wednesday said the new plant there will be able to produce 200 million cubic feet of natural gas a day.
Executive vice president and chief commercial officer Jim Holotik says the plant is needed because the company is getting a lot of gas from drilling in the Cotton Valley Play, which is above the Haynesville Shale formation in east Texas and north Louisiana.
Regency’s new 160-mile pipeline from Dubberly will deliver the remaining liquids to fractionation plants where they will be broken down into marketable components such as propane, butane and ethane
