Crestwood Equity Partners completed a non-binding open season on Dec. 7 seeking shipper support for the Delaware Takeaway crude pipeline system (Delta), a 164-mile crude and condensate pipeline header system originating at a Crestwood terminal to be built north of Pecos, TX.
The pipeline would have potential downstream connections to multiple downstream interconnects that will provide shippers access to end markets including El Paso, Midland, Cushing, Houston and Corpus Christi.
Delta will have the capability to batch multiple grades of crude and condensate, and initially transport over 200,000 bpd, and the project may be expanded based on the results of the open season. Delta is expected to be operational in mid-2017.
Crestwood is also in negotiations with a large producer in the Delaware Permian Basin to anchor a three-stream gathering system spanning portions of the Texas counties of Reeves, Loving and Culberson that would aggregate crude and condensate volumes to the Orla Terminal, near Pecos. The system would consist of 600 miles of pipelines within 400,000 acres.
The Orla Terminal would initially provide 200,000 bbls of storage, truck-loading and unloading facilities, blending services, multiple upstream and downstream pipeline connections, and will potentially provide condensate stabilization services for Wolfcamp production.
