American Midstream commences full operation of Cayenne pipeline
HOUSTON — American Midstream Partners, LP announced the completion and commencement of deliveries on the previously announced Cayenne Pipeline joint venture between AMID and Targa Resources Corp.
Cayenne will initially have 40,000 bpd of Y-grade NGL transport capacity with the ability to expand to more than 50,000 bpd. Cayenne will originate from the Targa-operated Venice gas processing plant and deliver to fractionation in Southern Louisiana.
The commencement of Cayenne provides AMID with strategic transport capabilities for the majority of all NGL volume out of Gulf of Mexico's deep-water Mississippi Canyon region where AMID has developed an integrated gathering and transportation network. Cayenne is supported by a 15-yr dedication for all NGL production from Targa's 750 MMcfd Venice plant with inlet from six offshore Gulf of Mexico pipelines.
According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.
Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants
Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
