Platts Unveils its 2012 North American Natural Gas Liquids Map

NEW YORK, July 17, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — Platts, a leading global energy, petrochemicals and metals information provider, has expanded its portfolio of maps with the recent addition of the 2012 North American Natural Gas Liquids Map. This detailed, printed wall map captures the thriving North American natural gas liquids (NGL) industry from the ground up.

In addition to the geographical components, this map offers a combination of the industry's key structural components in striking detail – from the source region, to the pipeline, to the processing plant to the delivery terminal. Utilizing specialized data from Platts analytics unit Bentek Energy, cartographers also have pinpointed industry-critical information and charts on such as the following:

  • Existing and planned NGL pipelines
  • NGL storage facilities
  • NGL fractionators
  • Steam crackers
  • Gas processing plants
  • The five U.S. Petroleum Administration for Defense Districts (PADD regions)

For convenient reference, representation of NGL pipelines are color-coded and labeled by system and pipeline name. Shale play regions are color-coded by primary extraction source. Detailed insets depict major NGL production hubs in the Texas cities of Dallas/Fort Worth and Mont Belvieu as well as Baton Rouge, Louisiana. An inset of Midland, Texas, illustrates the Permian Basin, a sedimentary basin in the southwestern part of the U.S. which is a key producer of oil and gas.

The 2012 North American Natural Gas Liquids Map measures 42" x 66" and is available in two formats: a glossy version suitable for framing or display ($395*) and a laminated version ($460*), which can be marked upon to facilitate analysis and planning.

Platts offers approximately 30 maps and maps products, in addition to a wide variety of Geographic Information System (GIS) data.

Platts' maps and spatial data have been featured by broadcast and print media outlets including The New York Times, Newsweek, TIME and National Geographic.
