Natural Gas Intelligence

Growing demand from natural gas producers in the Haynesville Shale is driving a suite of gathering and processing (G&P) expansions on Clearfork Midstream LLC’s Holly System in North Louisiana.

The expansions include constructing a 24-inch diameter pipeline to the east side of the Red River in northeast Red River Parish, as well as a 16-inch diameter pipeline in the Spring Ridge area in Caddo Parish. EnCap Flatrock Midstream-backed Clearfork also would build interconnects for additional takeaway capacity and downstream market optionality for customers as part of the expansions on the assets formerly owned by Azure Midstream Energy LLC.

“These expansions strengthen our position in the Haynesville, where we remain focused on deploying growth capital and developing the infrastructure needed to serve our customers’ needs,” said CEO Kipper Overstreet.

The company chief told NGI that commercial discussions with producers have been active over the past seven months, with Clearkfork “90% confident in 2023 volumes and 50% in 2024 volumes.
