New Gas Processing Plant Under Construction in West Lincoln Parish

PennTex Midstream Partners, LLC is constructing a 200 million cubic foot/ day natural gas processing facility on a 48 acre site on Elliot Road northwest of Simsboro.

Construction was announced last March and is expected to be complete in March, 2015. The facility will process gas to remove liquids and deliver the residue gas to the intrastate and interstate pipeline systems. It will consist of a cryogenic processing plant and the associated natural gas residue and natural gas liquids pipelines.

Chris Staffel, spokesperson for the company, said the facility will employ 7 to 10 permanent employees. Company representatives will be in the area in the next few days to interview for the positions.

About 200 temporary jobs will be created during the construction phase of the project.

Entergy Louisiana, LLC has signed a 10 year contract with PennTex to supply 25 megawatts of electric power for the facility.

PennTex Midstream Partners, LLC is a Houston-based midstream service provider that partners with customers to offer treating, gathering, processing, residue gas transmission, and liquids take away solutions. Integration with existing infrastructure can also be included.

Over the past few years, the western part of Lincoln Parish has seen significant drilling and production of natural gas. As it flows from the well, the gas often contains natural gas condensate, which must be stripped out before the gas can be safely transported and sold.
