Phillips 66 to expand Texas natural gas liquids project
(Reuters) - U.S. oil refiner Phillips 66 said on Wednesday it planned to spend up to $1.5 billion on the expansion of its natural gas liquids project in Sweeny, Texas.
The expansion includes the construction of two natural gas liquids fractionators, with a capacity of 150,000 barrel per day (bpd) each, the company said.
DCP Midstream LP said it had an option to buy up to a 30 percent stake in the fractionators. The option would be exercisable once the project is completed and has a capital investment of about $400 million..
The project, which is set to begin commercial operations in late 2020, will increase Sweeny hub's natural gas liquids refining capacity to 400,000 bpd. (Reporting by Parikshit Mishra in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
The US Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported in April that the US set records for natural gas production in 2017.

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
