Energy Transfer completes pipeline expansion project

December 7, 2020 By    

Energy Transfer completed its Lone Star Express Pipeline expansion project earlier this year.

The project, a major part of Energy Transfer’s 2020 capital program, was completed on budget and ahead of schedule, the company announced on Sept. 1.

The pipeline adds over 400,000 barrels per day (bpd) of natural gas liquids (NGL) capacity to the company’s existing Lone Star NGL pipeline system in Texas. The new 352-mile, 24-in. pipeline originates in Winkler County, Texas, and connects into the existing Lone Star Express 30-in. pipeline at the Morgan Junction in Bosque County, Texas, south of Fort Worth. It will provide shippers additional connectivity out of the Permian and Delaware basins.

The Lone Star pipeline system ultimately connects into Energy Transfer’s Mont Belvieu facility, an integrated liquids storage and fractionation facility along the U.S. Gulf Coast with connectivity to over 35 petrochemical plants, refineries, fractionators and third-party pipelines. Energy Transfer’s seventh fractionator at Mont Belvieu was brought online earlier this year, bringing the partnership’s total fractionation capacity to more than 900,000 bpd.

Energy Transfer LP says it owns and operates one of the largest and most diversified portfolios of energy assets in the U.S., with a strategic footprint in all of the major domestic production basins. Energy Transfer is a publicly traded limited partnership with core operations that include complementary natural gas midstream, intrastate and interstate transportation and storage assets; crude oil, NGL and refined product transportation and terminal assets; NGL fractionation; and various acquisition and marketing assets.
