Southcross completes Y-grade pipeline after second NGL fractionation train is placed in-service

Southcross Holdings LP (Southcross Holdings) recently placed in-service the second of two natural gas liquids (NGL) fractionation trains at its Robstown Fractionator (Robstown) near Corpus Christi, Texas, which brings Robstown’s total capacity to 63 000 bpd.


Southcross Holdings owns 100% of Southcross Energy Partners GP, LLC – the general partner of Southcross Energy Partners, L.P. (Southcross) – limited partner interests in Southcross, and multiple Eagle Ford based midstream assets. The assets at Southcross Holdings, including Robstown, are available for drop-down into Southcross.

The completion of Robstown, together with the existing Southcross fractionation assets, provides Southcross with sufficient capacity to meet its current and projected growth needs for Y-grade produced from its existing natural gas processing complex. The completion of the second Robstown fractionation train is an important milestone in the development of its integrated processing and fractionation complex, allowing Southcross to deliver additional purity NGL products from the Robstown facility to customers in the Corpus Christi area.

The pipeline

In addition, Southcross has completed a Y-grade pipeline connecting its Gregory processing facility to the Bonnie View and Robstown fractionators. All three of the Southcross South Texas processing facilities are now connected to both Robstown and Bonnie View providing greater flexibility to maximise economics and NGL recoveries. Southcross’ integrated South Texas processing and fractionation complex is a critical component of the Southcross Advantage, providing enhanced operational efficiency and reliability that benefits both Southcross and its customers.

Comments from John Bonn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Southcross’ general partner

“The completion of Robstown and the Y-grade pipeline connecting our Gregory processing plant further enhance the value of our integrated South Texas system of assets and provides us with capacity to support future growth. Robstown is well positioned to meet the growing needs of the petrochemical, industrial and export demand in the Corpus Christi area and it is ideally suited for potential drop-down to Southcross.”
