Oklahoma City-based Enable Midstream Partners LP is planning a pipeline expansion in the growing shale plays in central Oklahoma. The project will serve the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (SCOOP) and the STACK region, comprised of the Sooner Trend oil field, Anadarko basin, and Canadian and Kingfisher counties.
Enable announced April 4 that its wholly owned subsidiary, Enable Gas Transmission LLC (EGT), has entered transportation agreement with Newfield Exploration Co. to provide 205 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of firm natural gas transportation. Newfield is a top producer in the growing SCOOP and STACK plays.
The 10-year contract is associated with EGT’s recently announced Cana and STACK Expansion (CaSE) project and is expected to start at an initial capacity of 45 MMcf/d in early 2018, growing to the full 205 MMcf/d of contracted capacity by the fourth quarter of 2018.
“We are pleased to provide Newfield with a timely, cost-effective and flexible natural gas transportation solution out of the Anadarko Basin with access to premium markets,” said Rod Sailor, Enable’s president and CEO. “This project capitalizes on Enable’s substantial transportation footprint in the basin while adding significant firm, fee-based revenues.”
Open seasons for the CaSE project and the Kingfisher Extension project on the Enable Oklahoma Intrastate Transmission LLC (EOIT) system closed on March 28. Enable is currently evaluating the bids received to determine customer demand for additional capacity.
Enable owns, operates and develops strategically located natural gas and crude oil infrastructure assets. The company’s assets include approximately 12,900 miles of gathering pipelines, 14 major processing plants with approximately 2.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of processing capacity, approximately 7,800 miles of interstate pipelines (including Southeast Supply Header LLC, of which Enable owns 50 percent), approximately 2,200 miles of intrastate pipelines and eight storage facilities comprising 85 Bcf of storage capacity.
