Gathering and processing agreements have been executed between Brazos Midstream and ‘Shell Exploration & Production’ to construct a new natural gas gathering system located in the core of the Delaware Basin.
16 miles of high-pressure pipeline will be constructed by Brazos which will extend from the company’s existing gathering and processing systems. It can be expanded further to support multi-well pad development by current producer customers, as well as other producers in the area.
“We are very pleased to announce the expansion of our relationship with Shell Exploration and Production, one of world’s premier oil and gas companies, as well as the completion of our Comanche III processing plant,” said Brad Iles, Brazos Chief Executive Officer. “These projects are a testament to the strength of our operating team and demonstrate our commitment to aggressively expand our asset base in support of our upstream customers.”
Brazos’ Comanche III plant, a 200 million cubic feet per day cryogenic natural gas processing plant was recently commissioned and is the third plant in Brazos’ natural gas processing complex. The company is anticipating further expansion with a new 200 million cubic feet per day processing plant called Comanche IV and expects to begin construction as early as 2020.
