6 November 2006 — Navasota Energy announced plans to begin work on Phase II of the Quail Run Energy Center, a combined cycle gas-fired power plant in Odessa, Texas. Navasota Energy said the continuation of the project is due to the progress of Phase I and favorable conditions in general. Phase II will expand the combined cycle plant from the current 275-MW capacity to its full capacity of 550-MW.
The second phase of the facility, like the first, will be designed using state-of-the-art emissions control technology that meets or exceeds all state and federal regulations for a plant of this type. Navasota Energy said all of the permitting and infrastructure to support the Phase II expansion is already in place.
Phase II is expected to come online with the first phase in the spring of 2007.
