Southcross Energy Partners, L.P. has commenced construction of a new 24-inch diameter pipeline, approximately 94 miles in length in the rich gas area of the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas. The pipeline, named the Webb Pipeline, is expected to have initial uncompressed capacity of approximately 300 MMcf/d. Southcross has also initiated construction of a 5 mile extension of its McMullen Pipeline to connect to the new pipeline.
The pipeline will extend from Webb County near Encinal, Texas, to McMullen County near Tilden, Texas. At Tilden, the new Webb Pipeline will connect to the extension of Southcross' existing McMullen Pipeline. This new project will allow rich gas sourced from Webb County to flow to Southcross' processing and fractionation complex near Corpus Christi, Texas.
