Lucid Energy Group expands gathering, processing capacity in Delaware Basin

Midstream provider Lucid Energy Group has made expansions to its gathering and processing capacity in the Delaware Basin of southeastern New Mexico.

Phase I of the growth plan has focused on the South Carlsbad Gathering and Processing System in Lea and Eddy counties, New Mexico. In 90 days, Lucid has expanded processing capacity at the Red Hills Natural Gas Processing complex by 40%, increasing capacity from 60 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) to 110 MMcf/d. Lucid has begun construction of a new cryogenic processing train and amine treating facilities at the Red Hills Plant with an expected commission date of mid-2017, bringing processing capacity to 310 MMcf/d.

Lucid has also commissioned two new compressor stations and has added liquids handling facilities to eight existing compressor stations. These infrastructure modifications have added an additional 80,000 cubic feet per day of gathering capacity. Approximately 80 miles of gathering pipeline is currently under construction within the South Carlsbad System.

Lucid Energy Group is a diversified energy company that provides a full suite of midstream services to producers working in the Permian Basin. Lucid is supported by capital commitments from EnCap Flatrock Midstream.
