Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners said Tuesday it recently began service of the third train at its Orla cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Reeves County. The completion of the final announced processing unit at Orla increases natural gas processing capacity at the facility to 900 million cubic feet per day and allows Enterprise to produce more than 140,000 b/d of NGLs. Enterprise now has the capacity to process 1.3 billion cubic of natural gas and produce about 200,000 b/d of NGLs in the Permian Basin.
A.J. (Jim) Teague, CEO, said, “And we are not through yet expanding our processing capabilities in the Permian. The Mentone cryogenic natural gas processing facility in Loving County, which will have the capacity to process 300 MMcfd of natural gas and extract in excess of 40,000 b/d of NGLs, is on schedule for completion in the first quarter of 2020.” Orla and Mentone link Enterprise customers to the company’s integrated pipeline network, including the recently completed Shin Oak pipeline and Texas Intrastate natural gas system.
