Copano Energy to expand processing capacity at Houston facility

EBR Staff Writer Published 19 April 2011

Copano Energy is planning to expand gas processing capacity at its Houston Central complex in the US state of Texas to meet producer demand in the rapidly developing Eagle Ford Shale play.

The expansion project will consist of a new 400,000mcf per day cryogenic processing plant, which is expected to be in service by early 2013.

According to the company, capital spending for the new project is estimated to be approximately $145m.

The expansion project will bring the company's total processing capacity at the Houston Central facility to 1.1bcf per day.

US based Copano Energy is a midstream natural gas company with operations in Texas, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Louisiana.
