Sand Hills, Southern Hills pipelines moving NGLs to Gulf Coast

July 9, 2013 By    

DCP Midstream, Phillips 66 and Spectra Energy announced in June that the Sand Hills and Southern Hills natural gas liquids (NGLs) pipelines are in service and delivering to growing Gulf Coast markets. The companies each own a one-third interest in the pipeline entities. The 720-mile Sand Hills NGL Pipeline is transporting NGLs from production in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford Shale in Texas. The 800-mile Southern Hills NGL Pipeline is transporting NGLs from production in the Midcontinent.

“Sand Hills and Southern Hills provide a solution to the critical need for vital transportation capacity from key liquids producing regions,” says Wouter van Kempen, chairman, president and CEO of DCP Midstream, in a press release. “DCP Midstream will have an integrated NGL pipeline system, consisting of Sand Hills and Southern Hills as well as our interests in the Front Range and Texas Express pipelines, that connect our gathering and processing systems located in most of the major liquids-rich and oil-driven shale plays to growing Gulf Coast markets.”
