DUBBERLY, La. (AP) — A Dallas partnership says it will build a natural gas liquids processing plant and pipeline in north Louisiana.

Regency Energy Partners LP says they'll cost $260 million.

Regency has a refrigeration plant in Dubberly. A news release Wednesday said the new plant there will be able to produce 200 million cubic feet of natural gas a day.

Executive vice president and chief commercial officer Jim Holotik (HAH-luh-tek) says it's needed because the company is getting a lot of gas from drilling in the Cotton Valley Play, which is above the Haynesville Shale formation in east Texas and north Louisiana.

Regency also plans a 160-mile pipeline from Dubberly to deliver the remaining liquids to fractionation plants where they will be broken down into marketable components such as propane, butane and ethane.
