U.S. Energy Development Completes Midstream Infrastructure Project in Eagle Ford Shale

U.S. Energy Development Corporation announced the completion of a $607,000 pipeline project involving the LLM South B, LLM South C, LLM North A, Sola Vaca Norte A (SVNA), Hideaway Ranch A and Hideaway Ranch E midstream infrastructure development projects in the Eagle Ford Shale.

These projects represent one of many ways the Texas-based exploration and production firm is committed to advancing its environmental, social and corporate governance efforts.

The pipeline project is a proactive approach by U.S. Energy to reduce flaring, thereby decreasing the firm's carbon footprint and inherently benefitting its stakeholders. Often the economics of laying pipelines do not justify the value gained from selling the gas, which results in the gas being flared. As the Texas Railroad Commission continues to increase pressure on upstream companies to reduce flaring, U.S. Energy saw this project as an opportunity to get ahead of the curve by eliminating its Eagle Ford area flaring.

"This is an exciting announcement for U.S. Energy as flaring reduction has been an initiative of ours for over the past six months," U.S. Energy's Vice President of Operations Kevin Duncan said. "Tying in the LLM, SVNA and Hideaway Ranch A & E pipelines eliminates the flares from some of our most significant gas producers."

Since December 2020, this project and similar developments have reduced field flaring by a total of 88%. The firm's goal is to eliminate its flaring in the basin by the end of 2021.

"We are working in respect to recent RRC rulings to ensure this 3.4-mile pipeline project continues to be as environmentally friendly as possible," said Jordan Jayson, CEO and chairman of the board for U.S. Energy. "As we continue to expand our project footprint, we will remain committed to aligning ESG with our core values to better serve the community, environment and our stakeholders."
