Enterprise Products Partners L.P. (Enterprise) began operations at its new Bulldog cryogenic natural gas processing plant (previously referred to as the Panola 3 gas plant) in Panola County, Texas, USA.
The facility has the capability to process 200 MMcfd (5.6 x 106 m3/d) of natural gas and extract up to 12,000 barrels per day (BPD) of natural gas liquids (NGL). Combined with Enterprise’s existing Panola cryogenic facility, this new plant gives the company the capacity to process a total of 320 MMcfd (9.06 x 106 m3/d) and produce in excess of 18,000 BPD of NGLs within the region.
NGLs produced at the plant will be transported on the Panola Pipeline to Mont Belvieu, Texas, for fractionation services. Residue gas from the tailgate of the Bulldog plant will have connectivity with Enterprise’s North Texas Intrastate pipeline system, along with other major pipelines and markets in the East Texas – Carthage area. The Bulldog plant fully integrates Enterprise’s existing Fairplay gathering system with the BTA gathering system, which was acquired in 2017.
