Cogent to Build Natural Gas Pipeline in Midland Basin
HOUSTON (DTN) -- Cogent Midstream, LLC announced it will construct an
approximately 25-mile pipeline to deliver residue gas from its Big Lake Natural
Gas Processing Complex in the Midland Basin to Kinder Morgan's Gulf Coast
Cogent said in a release that it expects the residue pipeline will also
cross the proposed Permian Highway Pipeline and Whistler Pipeline projects.
The 20-inch pipeline is anticipated to come into service in the fourth
quarter and have a total capacity of approximately 400 MMcf/d, Cogent said.
The pipeline's in-service date coincides with Cogent's fourth-quarter
timeline for commissioning its Big Lake II natural gas cryogenic processing
plant, which is to have a nameplate capacity of approximately 200 MMcf/d and
bring the company's total processing capacity to approximately 510 MMcf/d.
"Cogent's investments in the Big Lake II Plant and the residue gas pipeline
to GCX continue to demonstrate the high level of commitment we've made to
serving our customers," said Cogent Midstream CEO Dennis J. McCanless.
"Both projects are designed to ensure that Cogent's producers have the
reliable service and optionality they need to efficiently move their volumes to
growing markets and achieve the best possible netbacks," McCanless said.
Cogent Midstream provides services that include gas gathering, compression
and processing, and crude oil gathering, transportation, and third-party
