Crestwood Midstream Partners is planning to develop two grassroot gas-processing plants near Douglas, Wyoming to process natural gas extracted from the Wyoming side of the Niobrara Shale formation.
According to an article in the Douglas Budget newspaper, Crestwood's first proposed processing plant, with an anticipated investment of $100 million, is still in the permitting phase, but construction is expected to begin by late 2013 and should begin operating by mid-2014, assuming all permits are received by later this year. The plant’s planned operating capacity will be 100 MMcf/d. The processed gas will be shipped via an existing interstate pipeline after natural gas liquids including ethane, propane and butane are separated. A second, larger, processing plant also near Douglas, Wyoming, with a budget of $200 million is planned for mid-2015 but will require approval by the Wyoming Industrial Siting Council.
More than 20 active oil and gas infrastructure projects are in the works in Wyoming, with total investment value of about $1 billion.
