Outrigger Completes Construction of Williston Basin Midstream Facilities

Outrigger Energy II announced it has completed construction of its Williston Basin midstream facilities project in Williams County, ND.

The assets consist of the Bill Sanderson Gas Processing Plant, a 250 MMcfd cryogenic gas processing plant located west of Williston, ND, and an 80-mile, 20 and 24-inch diameter, rich gas gathering system originating in eastern Williams County and terminating at the Bill Sanderson Plant. The high efficiency plant features ethane recovery and rejection capabilities with direct market access to the Northern Border Pipeline system for residue gas and the ONEOK NGL pipeline system for natural gas liquids. The assets are anchored by a long-term gas gathering and processing agreement with XTO Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of ExxonMobil. The gathering system can transport over 450 MMcfd of raw gas volumes and Outrigger plans to expand the plant’s capacity based on producer needs.

“We are exceptionally proud of our team who worked diligently within a very ambitious schedule and were able to successfully execute the project, even through the COVID-19 global pandemic,” Outrigger CEO Dave Keanini said. “We delivered the project on time – in less than eight months from groundbreaking – for our anchor customer and under budget for our investors.”

While Williston Basin activity levels slowed due to the 2020 crude oil pricing and COVID-19 environments, there is substantial interest from producers to accommodate future drilling plans as crude oil prices near sustainable levels for the Basin, according to Outrigger.

“Our assets are perfectly situated to provide producers with a competitive midstream option for both new development and volumes that are currently flaring due to infrastructure constraints,” Keanini said.
