Gas processing facility moving into Refugio County
Southcross Energy is expanding the Eagle Ford shale area in South Texas by adding a new natural gas processing plant near Woodsboro.
The new plant will add a capacity of 200 million cubic feet of gas per day and will be the company's largest processing facility.
The company also will increase the capacity of its Gregory processing plant in San Patricio County to 135 million cubic feet of gas per day.
Southcross' strategically located processing plants will provide producers the multiple options for residue gas disposition via various pipeline interconnects and connections to the local industrial market in the Corpus Christi ship channel. Multiple options for natural gas liquids deposits at the plants are planned.
"We are pleased to make extensive improvements to our gas processing and liquids-handling capability to serve producers operating in the Eagle Ford shale area," said David. W. Biegler, Southcross chairman and chief executive officer.
The new plant should be completed in the second quarter of 2012.
