Located near Ruston, LA, the Mt. Olive facility consists of a 200 MMcf/d design-capacity cryogenic natural gas processing plant with on-site liquids handling facilities for inlet gas as well as additional residue gas and NGL pipelines. The 14-mile residue gas pipeline has throughput capacity of approximately 400 MMcf/d and provides market access for residue natural gas from the Partnership's processing plants. The 41-mile NGL pipeline has throughput capacity of more than 36,000 barrels per day and provides transportation to downstream markets for NGLs produced from the Partnership's processing plants.
"Today marks yet another significant achievement for the PennTex operations team with the completion of our second plant – proving to both our customers and our unitholders that PennTex will deliver midstream projects on time and on budget," said Rob Bond, President and Chief Operating Officer. "The addition of the Mt. Olive plant positions us for continued growth across the Terryville Complex."
To date, the project has generated 22 full time jobs, approximately 600 construction jobs and engaged approximately 20 local firms.
"Working with our partner companies and the local, state and federal agencies, PennTex has been able to successfully design, build and commission these facilities in an extremely safe and efficient manner to meet the processing requirements of our customers," said Tommy Stone, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations and Engineering Officer.
This marks the completion of the second phase of the Partnership's Terryville Complex assets.
