EnLink Midstream and EnLink Midstream Partners plan to construct a new crude oil gathering system in locations within the Permian Basin.
The Greater Chickadee crude gathering project will be based in Upton and Midland counties, which will include more than 150 miles of high and low pressure pipelines that will transport crude oil volumes to several major market outlets and other key hub centres in the Midland, Texas area.
A subsidiary of EnLink Midstream Partners and EnLink Midstream will invest around $70 million to $80 million to build the system.
The project includes the construction of multiple central tank batters and pump, truck injection and storage stations to maximise shipping and delivery options.
The initial phase is expected to be operational in the second half of 2016, with full service expected in early 2017.
Barry Davis, president and CEO of EnLink Midstream, says: ‘Greater Chickadee is the next step in creating a regional gathering system to capture additional value through an expanded platform and improved asset integration.’
