Operations

The San Andres Crude Gathering System is a greenfield crude oil gathering and trunkline pipeline system, which primarily serves wells producing from the San Andres formation in Yoakum County, Texas, and Lea County, New Mexico.  The system provides transportation service to multiple takeaway pipelines near Denver City, Texas, providing producers and marketers with cost-effective access to all major crude markets in West Texas. The crude gathering system establishes Stakeholder as the leading crude-by-pipe gatherer in the emerging horizontal San Andres play with expansion capabilities not only in Yoakum and Lea counties, but also into Cochran, Andrews and Gaines counties. Construction began in January 2017 and the crude gathering system became operational in April 2017. In September 2017, Stakeholder announced an expansion of the system that will include additional gathering lines, pump stations and storage capacity at Stakeholder’s crude terminal. New gathering lines are expected to come into service in the first quarter of 2018. 

Stakeholder has announced plans for the San Andres Natural Gas Gathering System, a comprehensive gas gathering, treating and processing system that will include low-pressure sour gas gathering lines across Yoakum County, Texas, and into Lea County, New Mexico. To support its expanded gathering footprint, Stakeholder will construct a state-of-the-art treating and processing facility in Yoakum County. The new facility will include front-end liquids handling, an amine treater and acid gas injection well, a cryogenic processing plant with the capacity to process 60 million cubic feet per day, and a nitrogen rejection unit. Stakeholder’s gas system will be fully operational in the third quarter of 2018. 

The Lovington Gas Gathering System is comprised of 295 miles of high- and low-pressure gas gathering lines, 7,400 horsepower of compression and a 35,000 Mcfd refrigeration plant. The system currently provides gathering to customers located in northern Lea and Chaves counties in New Mexico. Stakeholder plans to significantly expand the system to serve additional producers in the area. The Lovington system represents the first step in designing a comprehensive natural gas gathering, treating and processing solution to serve customers currently operating in the Northwest Shelf of the Permian Basin.
