Regency Energy Partners LP's CEO Discusses Q1 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

Stocks in this article: RGP

Moving on to an update on the progress of the rest of our organic growth projects. Construction of our Eagle Ford expansion project continues and we are on schedule to complete the project in 2014. We are increasing our capital expenditures related to this project from $450 million to approximately $490 million as we have decided to assume a portion of the project that was originally to be provided by a third party. Additionally, we are close to filling our existing processing capacity and are actively working on expanding our processing capacity in the region in 2012.

Eagle Ford expansion project and the Tilden expansion give Regency an extensive gathering, processing, compression and treating platform to address increasing demand for liquids and treating services for producers in the Eagle Ford Shale.

In West Texas where we are constructing a new processing facility for our Ranch Joint Venture, we have seen rig counts increase 26% from the first quarter of 2011 to the first quarter of 2012. To accommodate production growth associated with the high liquids content, the Ranch Joint Venture's 25 million a day refrigeration plant is expected to go into service in the second quarter of 2012, and we expect the 100 million a day cryo facility to be in service by the end of this year.

In addition, we will begin to see -- receive Avalon Shale volumes through our partners' gathering systems as they are connecting their Avalon acreage into their Bone Spring gathering systems to flow volumes to the new processing facility. These facilities will help alleviate capacity constraints at Regency's Waha plant to accommodate additional production growth.

Turning to the Lone Star joint venture. In the first quarter of 2012, Lone Star completed an interim expansion project on the West Texas Pipeline to provide additional capacity as a bridge until the gateway pipeline is completed. The interim expansion provides an additional 30,000 barrels per day of liquids takeaway from West Texas. This expansion is allowing Regency to flow additional liquid volumes into Mont Belvieu.
