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 Express Pipeline. 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 condensate stabilization. (c) 2019 DTN.
