PennTex Midstream Partners LP (PTXP) said its Mt. Olive facility in northern Louisiana has been completed and placed in-service.

The Houston company expects this to increase its natural gas processing capacity to 400 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) in the region's Terryville Complex.

Located near Ruston, La., the Mt. Olive facility consists of a 200 MMcf/d design-capacity cryogenic natural gas processing plant with onsite liquids handling facilities for inlet gas as well as additional residue gas and NGL pipelines.

The 14-mile residue gas pipeline has throughput capacity of about 400 MMcf/d and provides market access for residue natural gas from the company's processing plants. The 41-mile NGL pipeline has throughput capacity of more than 36,000 barrels per day and provides transportation to downstream markets for NGLs produced from the Partnership's processing plants.

To date, the project has generated 22 full time jobs, about 600 construction jobs and engaged approximately 20 local firms, the release said.

The completion of the plant is the second phase of the company's Terryville Complex assets.

The first phase of development was completed in May. It included the Lincoln Parish plant, a 200 MMcf/d design-capacity cryogenic natural gas processing plant, and 31 miles of related natural gas gathering and residue gas transportation pipelines.

The company provides gathering, processing and transportation services for customers in the Terryville Complex under long-term, fee-based agreements.
