Navigator Energy Services LLC has begun initial service on its Big Spring Gateway Pipeline System (BSG System), making deliveries into the Sunoco Logistics-owned West Texas Gulf Pipeline and the Permian Express 2, with the current capability to transport up to 40,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
The BSG System, serving customers in the Permian Basin region, is expected to be in full service in December with a throughput capacity of up to 160,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
The 450-mile BSG System spans portions of Martin, Howard, Glasscock, Midland, and Mitchell counties in Texas, the heart of the Permian Basin region. Once completed, the system will have more than 250 miles of gathering pipeline, 200 miles of 6- to 16-in. transportation mainline and 410,000 barrels of crude oil storage capacity.
In addition to the Sunoco Logistics-owned pipelines, the BSG System will provide delivery into Alon’s Big Spring Refinery and the BridgeTex Pipeline, providing a direct path to Texas Gulf Coast and Mid-Continent market centers. The system will also include five truck stations, strategically located to accommodate trucked production in the area.
