Canyon Midstream Partners, LLC has entered into gathering and processing agreements with XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, and Apache Corporation for midstream services on Canyon’s James Lake System.
In addition, Canyon has expanded its cryogenic gas processing plant in Ector County, TX at the James Lake Plant from 70 MMcf/d to 100 MMcf/d by adding a 30 MMcf/d cryogenic turbo expansion train. The James Lake Plant is part of Canyon’s James Lake System, which consists of 60 miles of 12-inch trunkline and six field compressor stations providing low-pressure gathering services to Ector, Andrews, Martin, Dawson and Gaines counties, TX.
When completed in late 2014, the James Lake System will deliver residue gas into the El Paso Natural Gas pipeline and deliver NGLs to the Sand Hills pipeline and the Chaparral pipeline in Ector County. Canyon is also developing Phase II of the James Lake System, which will consist of a second 100 MMcf/d cryogenic gas processing plant in Martin County and 60 additional miles of 12-inch trunkline, which will expand the system’s service territory into Howard and Borden counties, TX. Canyon expects Phase II to start operations in the first half of 2015.
