Cardinal Midstream brings third plant online in Woodford shale

Cardinal Midstream, LLC

Cardinal Midstream, LLC has brought its third cryogenic processing plant online in the Arkoma Woodford shale. With 220 million cubic feet of natural gas per day (MMcf/d) of operated cryogenic processing capacity, Cardinal is now the largest natural gas processor in Oklahoma’s Arkoma Woodford shale. The new cryogenic processing facility, called the Tupelo Plant, is in Coal County, Okla, and is capable of processing 120 MMcf/d.

The Tupelo Plant complements the two additional cryogenic processing plants Cardinal operates in the play — the Coalgate Plant, an 80 MMcf/d facility adjacent to the Tupelo Plant, and the Atoka Plant with a capacity of 20 MMcf/d, located 13 miles to the south in Atoka County, Okla.

An NGL pipeline connects the Atoka Plant with the Coalgate and Tupelo facilities, where NGLs are delivered to the ONEOK NGL Pipeline system. The Coalgate and Atoka plants are owned in a joint venture with MarkWest Energy Partners, LP. Dallas-based Cardinal is the sole owner of the Tupelo Plant.

"Bringing the Tupelo Plant online is an important step in our effort to address processing bottlenecks in the Arkoma Woodford," said R. Mack Lawrence, president of Cardinal Midstream. "Cardinal is expanding its gathering system and evaluating further processing capacity expansions given the level of drilling activity on dedicated acreage and the quality and production volume we’re seeing from the rich gas wells in the play."

Today, at the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers annual conference in Orlando, Florida, Wood Mackenzie says there are a number of ways the North American tight oil boom can go bust as the industry continues to wonder how long this trend will last. A drop in global oil price levels (a collapse in the price of Brent due to emerging market down-turn for example) or a significant widening of the differential between global oil prices and inland realizations are some of the reasons the energy research firm highlights.
