Navitas Midstream Partners LLC has executed a long-term, fee-based agreement with an investment-grade independent producer to provide gathering and processing services in the northern Eagle Ford shale play in Brazos and Grimes counties, Texas.
Navitas will construct the La Bahia system, which will consist of a 20-inch gathering line that will deliver gas from Brazos County to Navitas' natural gas processing plant to be located in Grimes County. When fully completed in mid-2015, the cryogenic processing plant will have a capacity of 120 million cubic feet per day.
“The new La Bahia system will be located at the intersection of multiple producing horizons, including the Eagle Ford and Woodbine, among others," said R. Bruce Northcutt, Navitas president and CEO. "We believe this transaction supports Navitas' long-term strategy of building an enduring, producer-focused midstream company."
