Enterprise to construct pipeline to serve Barnett Shale play in North Texas.
The Sherman Extension will be comprised of a 30 and 36inch diameter pipeline originating at a central delivery point on Enterprise's Texas intrastate pipeline system near Morgan Mill, TX (southwest of Fort Worth), and will extend through the center of the current Barnett Shale development area to Sherman, TX. From there, it will connect with Boardwalk's 42-inch Gulf Crossing Expansion, which features interconnects with seven major interstate pipelines, including the Transcontinental Pipeline system that accesses markets in the Northeast. The Sherman Extension is estimated to cost $400 million, most of which will be spent in 2008, and is expected to be placed into service in the fourth quarter of 2008. Furthermore, Enterprise has the option to acquire up to a 49% interest in the Gulf Crossing project, subject to certain conditions.
In addition to volumes received from producers and gatherers in the Barnett Shale region, the Sherman Extension will allow Enterprise to provide 200 MMcf/d of natural gas capacity from the Waha area in West Texas to Morgan Mill. The project will also make 400 MMcf/d of capacity from East Texas available on Enterprise's existing 36-inch intrastate pipeline.
