Construction is expected to begin this year on a 95-mile natural gas liquids pipeline in western Colorado and eastern Utah newly approved by the federal Bureau of Land Management.

The new pipeline will add about 15,000 barrels a day to Enterprise Mid-America Pipeline's current capacity.

The 16-inch pipeline, called the Western Expansion Project II, will add 15,000 barrels per day to Enterprise Mid-America Pipeline’s (MAPL) capacity for transporting natural gas liquids from Wyoming and Colorado to Hobbs, NM.

The new line traces an existing pipeline corridor across Rio Blanco, Garfield, and Mesa counties in Colorado, and Uintah and Grand counties in Utah. On Sept. 14, BLM approved the right-of-way for the 60 miles of the pipeline that will cross federal land.

The project’s preliminary Environmental Assessment was released July 31, a Finding of No Significant Impact was issued on Aug. 31, and a final EA was released Sept. 6.

Jobs, Timeline Cited

Construction is expected to take about six months, with the system coming online in the summer of 2013, according to Enterprise MAPL, a venture of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners L.P.

Western Expansion Project II

Construction will require the hiring of 400 to 450 workers (consisting of Enterprise MAPL employees, contractor employees, construction inspection staff, and environmental monitoring staff), the company estimates.

Liquid natural gas consists of marketable products such as propane, butane and benzene that can be recovered during natural gas production.

Looks like Hobbs connects nicely into the major West Texas and Oklahoma natural gas hubs. Should be especially useful once the Freeport LNG terminal is converted to export mode (probably in about 5 years) I wonder if Golden Pass will convert as well, or if they're just screwed.
