“We are very pleased with the successful execution of the project by our project management team and key contractors to complete this project safely, ahead of schedule and under budget,” J. Heath Deneke, Chief Operating Officer and President, Crestwood’s Pipeline Services Group, said. “The success of this project demonstrates our ability to capture and execute on accretive greenfield opportunities in and around our current asset footprint, and our commitment to best-in-class customer service, safe operations and environmental stewardship.”
