A new deepwater port project planned for Louisiana aims to complement existing Gulf Coast infrastructure to service the oil and gas industry.Meanwhile, over at Zacks:
Located in western Louisiana on the Calcasieu Ship Channel just south of Lakes Charles, the Port Cameron project will allow for faster deployment of supply vessels, support and emergency services for exploration and production (E&P) activities in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Port Cameron presents an opportunity for a brand new, modern port to be added to the Gulf Coast. Even with the oil price downturn, oil and gas activity in the Gulf of Mexico is expected to increase going forward.
Enterprise Products Partners L.P. has joined forces with an affiliate of Occidental Petroleum Corporation and the duo have brought online a new cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Reeves County, TX.Reeves County? Far west Texas, almost in New Mexico/Mexico. County seat: Pecos. And, oh, by the way, no one really knows the etymology of "pecos."
Delaware Basin Gas Processing LLC, a company in which Enterprise Products Partners and Occidental each hold a 50% interest, owns the plants. The new facility will be operated by Enterprise Products Partners.
The DBGP plant can extract over 22,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids. The plant, which has a capacity of 150 million cubic feet per day, is supported by long-term contracts and is designed to accommodate the growing production of natural gas liquids (NGL)-rich natural gas from the Delaware Basin.
Enterprise Products Partners has completed the construction of an 82 mile, 12 inch diameter NGL pipeline along with the DBGP plant. The new pipeline links the plant to the partnership’s Chaparral Pipeline. With this, customers will gain access to the partnership’s fractionation and storage complex in Mont Belvieu, TX.
