DJ South Gathering is expanding its crude oil gathering and transportation system in the DJ Basin with a series of pipeline projects.
The Badger Pipeline, one of three large diameter transmission lines currently being constructed by DJS, started receiving crude oil this month. With a throughput of 90,000 barrels per day, Badger transports production from southwestern Weld County and deliver into 300,000 barrels of dedicated crude oil storage at Platteville, the key crude oil hub within the DJ Basin in northeastern Colorado.
The DJS system includes the 220,000 barrel per day Matador pipeline, Bennet Station, the 150,000 barrel per day bi-directional Freedom pipeline and the Platteville storage and distribution network. Matador is due to be in service in late 2019. Bennet Station provides truck and gathered barrel origination into Matador, and crude qualities are segregated into onsite tankage. Freedom pipeline is the bi-directional, large diameter transmission line that will link Platteville to Lucerne West. This is the delivery point of ARB’s existing Platte River gathering system in the northern DJ.
At Platteville, DJS is developing a header system that interconnects with multiple long-haul takeaway pipelines and delivers crude oil to downstream markets.
