Black Bear will build approximately 20 miles of 16 inch, rich gas gathering pipe to the west of its DeSoto Parish cryogenic processing plant to support both this contract and other producers on both sides of the Louisiana and Texas border.

“We’re very happy and humbled that producers continue trust us to jointly pursue their growth plans. We’ve been methodically expanding our service offerings and customer base since our team began managing Black Bear in 2016. We’re fortunate to be in a position to continue expanding the business both geographically and in our high value service offerings,” said Travis Boeker, Black Bear’s EVP- Commercial.

Boeker went on to discuss the company’s desire to extend its midstream offerings in the region.

“Look for us to announce projects to extend our reach across the Texas border and throughout northern Louisiana. There has been increasing interest by regional pipelines targeting Gulf Coast markets to source gas within our catchment area. While we don’t have a dog in this long-haul fight, we believe it’s in our customer’s best interest to have options across these announced pipelines and we’re working to provide that optionality,” he said.
