Back in Time – 1990’s-2000’s




Gulf Coast




  • A period of declining domestic crude oil production and uncertain gas production

Gas evolution timeline l.jpg

Gas Evolution Timeline

Infrastructure Build



Supply Build

Demand Build


  • More capacity than needed

  • Repurpose lines

  • Marcellus displacement

  • REX - Rockies & MidCont to East Coast

  • Gulf Stream - Gulf Coast to Florida

  • Expanding of Transwestern, El Paso & Questar

  • Maritimes

  • Portland Natural Gas Pipeline

  • Expansion of Texas Intrastate Pipeline infrastructure

  • Shift in power generation & industrial loads to gas

  • PetChem industry relied on heavier (Naptha) feeds

  • Rising demand for plastic & packaging materials

  • Viewed as environmentally friendly energy source

  • Deregulate natural gas industry

  • Conventional / Tight Sands Drilling

  • Rising natural gas prices

  • NGPA pricing incentives

  • More than 20,000 miles of natural gas transmission pipelines were placed in service in the US over the past 10 years

Historical gas infrastructure constraints l.jpg

Historical Gas Infrastructure Constraints

West to East Flows



Production Growth Areas

Move East

Capacity Constraints

  • High gas production with capacity bottlenecks to move gas to market

Gas infrastructure l.jpg

Gas Infrastructure

West to East Bottleneck

  • Gas Infrastructure proposals to alleviate capacity constraints

Gas basis spreads l.jpg

Gas Basis Spreads

  • Natural Gas basis spreads narrowed with Gas infrastructure build out

2000 s forward l.jpg

2000’s forward

  • Drilling shifts to liquids rich areas, driving growth in NGL supply

Increased ngl supply l.jpg

Increased NGL Supply


  • New rich shale gas driving the need for additional NGL Infrastructure

Ngl infrastructure constraints l.jpg

NGL Infrastructure Constraints


Wet Gas Fairway

Capacity Constraints


  • NGL evolution is beginning similar to Gas. High NGL production with capacity constraints to move to market

Proposed ngl infrastructure l.jpg

Proposed NGL Infrastructure

  • Additional access to Mt. Belvieu expected to drive a tightening in Conway/Belvieu basis spreads

Dcp midstream s ngl projects l.jpg

DCP Midstream’s NGL Projects

  • Providing customers with NGL transportation services

Basis spreads l.jpg

Basis Spreads


  • Expect basis spreads to narrow with additional pipeline infrastructure build

Ngl evolution timeline l.jpg

NGL Evolution Timeline



Infrastructure Build

Supply Build

Demand Build


  • What’s next?

  • Narrow basis spreads

  • Operational improvements

  • Extra capacity to handle outages and turnarounds

  • Reverse flow on NGL Lines

  • Repurposing

  • Mapco

  • Seminole

  • Chevron

  • Oneok - OPPL

  • Southern Hills

  • Oneok - Sterling

  • Sand Hills

  • MEPS

  • Vantage Pipeline

  • Lone Star West Texas Pipeline

  • Texas Express Pipeline

  • Shift from to gas fired power generation

  • Petrochemical companies incentives to convert to lighter feed stocks

  • Increased consumer demand for plastics and packaging materials

  • Emerging Shale pays

  • New horizontal drilling technology

  • Gas to crude ratios

  • Infrastructure needed to meet production and demand growth

Evolution timeline l.jpg

Evolution Timeline

  • The NGL market development cycle is evolving similar to gas, just later in time.
