Oneok to Boost Oklahoma Compression, Gathering
Friday, April 20, 2012
Oneok Partners L.P. plans to spend US$160 million to upgrade its gathering and compression infrastructure in the Cana-Woodford Shale of West Central Oklahoma.
By the first quarter of 2014, it will also build a US$190 million plant in Canadian County to process up to 200 MMcfd (5.6 x 106 m3/day) of natural gas. When the projects are completed, the company’s gathering and processing capacity will be 390 MMcfd (11 x 106 m3/day) in the area.
The company said, “Additional natural gas processing infrastructure is necessary to accommodate increased production of liquids-rich natural gas in the Cana-Woodford Shale, where we have substantial acreage dedications from active producers.”
Oneok said the new Canadian Valley plant, which will be near its existing gas and gas liquids pipelines, will increase the partnership’s gas processing capacity in the state to 690 MMcfd (19.5 x 106 m3/day).
