Canyon Midstream Partners has announced its James Lake Midstream System in the Permian Basin commenced commercial operations on 1 December 2014.
"Canyon is excited to announce that our James Lake system commenced operation on 1 December 2014, less than 12 months after execution of our first processing agreement in the Permian Basin. Our success in permitting, designing and constructing a system of this scale in less than one year, with the ability to gather, treat and process sour gas, demonstrates the world-class capabilities of the Canyon team," said Michael Walsh, President and CEO of Canyon. "The tremendous commercial interest in this project supported our decision to increase the initial capacity of the James Lake plant by over 300% during construction. Canyon believes the Permian Basin is a long-term growth opportunity for our company, so we are continuing to invest in our team, processing assets and pipeline footprint in anticipation of further production growth."
Phase I of the James Lake system consists of a 105 MMcf/d cryogenic gas processing plant in Ector County, Texas, and six field compressor stations, 60 miles of 12 in. trunkline and 20 miles of low pressure gathering lines in Ector and Andrews counties, Texas. Phase II of the James Lake system will add a second cryogenic gas processing plant, with a capacity of 100 MMcf/d, in Andrews County and additional trunkline to expand the system's service territory into Lea County, New Mexico, and Martin and Howard counties, Texas. Canyon expects Phase II to begin operations in the first half of 2016.
