Midland, Texas-based Oryx Midstream Services II launched a binding open season to secure volume commitments or acreage dedications to support the regional crude oil gathering and trunk line transportation systems, which will serve the liquids-rich Delaware Basin in Texas and New Mexico.
Based on customer demand, Oryx has expanded the scope of the original project to include additional capacity and a larger footprint across the Delaware Basin. The new system is expected to consist of 400 miles of new gathering and transportation pipeline, with 650,000 bpd of throughput capacity and more than 1.5 MMbbls of storage capacity.
The new gathering and transportation system will span the Delaware Basin and is expected to provide services to Lea and Eddy counties in New Mexico, and Loving, Reeves, Ward, Winkler and Culberson counties in Texas.
Construction on the new system has begun and the regional transportation pipeline, which will connect Oryx’s Carlsbad station to the Crane and Midland market hubs, is expected to be fully commissioned during the fourth quarter of this year. The full system is expected to be complete in the second quarter of 2019.
The open season will conclude at 5 p.m. CDT on Aug. 9.
