Crosstex Energy Plans to Construct $80 Million Gas Processing Facility in Prolific Barnett Shale Region
DALLAS, Apr 28, 2008 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Crosstex Energy, L.P. (NASDAQ:XTEX) (the Partnership), today announced plans to construct an $80 million natural-gas processing facility called Bear Creek in the Barnett Shale region of North Texas. The new plant, which is expected to become operational in the third quarter of 2009, will have a gas processing capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), increasing the company's total processing capacity in the Barnett Shale to 485 MMcf/d. The Bear Creek plant will be strategically located near Crosstex's midstream assets in Hood County.

"The new Bear Creek facility will allow us to optimize the performance of our North Texas assets. The fact that we are beginning to construct this new plant on the heels of starting up the Silver Creek processing plant in 2007 clearly shows that we expect our volumes in the Barnett Shale to grow substantially," said Barry E. Davis, Crosstex President and Chief Executive Officer. "We are excited that Bear Creek will allow us to become an even better full-service provider to our customers, some of the most active natural-gas producers in the area."

Crosstex currently operates three gas processing plants in the Barnett Shale region with a total capacity of 285 MMcf/d.
