The agreement was the result of Azure’s bankruptcy auction proceedings, which Enterprise won with a bid price of $189 million. The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas entered an order approving the sale by Azure to Enterprise’s affiliate on March 15, 2017.
The assets include over 960 miles of natural gas gathering pipelines, three natural gas processing facilities with an aggregate capacity of approximately 210 MM ft3 per day and two 10,000 bpd NGL pipelines. These assets are located in Panola, Harrison, Angelina, Shelby, San Augustine, Sabine, Nacogdoches and Rusk counties, Texas and DeSoto and Caddo parishes, Louisiana. The system serves production from the Haynesville shale, Bossier, Cotton Valley and Travis Peak formations.
“We are pleased to acquire these assets,” said William Ordemann, executive vice president of Enterprise’s general partner. “These assets are very complementary to our East Texas NGL, Texas Intrastate natural gas pipeline, and our Haynesville gathering and Acadian natural gas pipeline systems. This transaction is expected to be immediately accretive to our distributable cash flow per unit.”
This transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval and closing conditions. Enterprise expects to close the transaction as soon as practicable after such regulatory approvals and closing conditions have been satisfied, which is expected to occur as early as April, 2017.
The small-scale GTL (SSGTL) and small-scale LNG (SSLNG) sectors are gaining ground, providing alternative sources of power generation and transportation fuel in remote regions and areas not connected to major gas pipeline routes.
Gas Processing and Hydrocarbon Processing are pleased to announce that as of August 2017, Gas Processing will be distributed along with both Pipeline & Gas Journal and Hydrocarbon Processing.
Novatek, Russia’s largest independent natural gas producer, plans to invest up to $11 B in the large-scale Arctic LNG 2 project. The project involves the construction of an LNG plant on the Gydan Peninsula—a geographical feature of the Siberian coast of the Kara Sea.
