The plant is part of Targa Resources’ Coastal Gathering and Processing Segment. The Coastal Gathering and Processing segment’s assets consist of LOU and the Coastal Straddles. LOU consists of approximately 900 miles of gathering system pipelines in Southwest Louisiana.
The gathering system is connected to numerous producing wells, central delivery points and/or pipeline interconnects in the area between Lafayette and Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The gathering system is a high-pressure gathering system that delivers natural gas for processing to either the Acadia or Gillis plants via three main trunk lines. The processing facilities include the Gillis and Acadia processing plants, both of which are cryogenic plants.
The Big Lake plant, also cryogenic, is located near the LOU gathering system. These processing plants have an aggregate processing capacity of approximately 440 MMcf/d.
In addition, the Gillis plant has integrated fractionation with operating capacity of approximately 11 MBbl/d, which is interconnected with the Lake Charles Fractionator.
The LOU gathering system is also interconnected with the Lowry gas plant, allowing receipt or delivery of gas.
On the changing landscape of global natural gas trade, the US has magnified its export power by remaining a net exporter for 13 months as of February 2019.
