Canyon Midstream adds pipeline, compression in Permian basin

Canyon Midstream Partners LLC, Houston, has completed the addition of new pipeline and compression in Winkler County, Tex., as part of an ongoing expansion of its James Lake midstream system, which provides gas gathering, treating, and processing services to producers in the Permian basin (OGJ, June 2, 2014, p. 72).

Developed and executed in response to increased customer demand for sour gas processing capacity in Winkler County, the expansion added compression at Canyon’s field facility in Kermit, Tex., as well as a 22-mile trunkline extension equipped to deliver as much as 60 MMcfd of gas to the James Lake plant for treating and processing, Canyon said.

With the expansion now completed, the James Lake system currently consists of a 110-MMcfd cryogenic gas processing plant in Ector County, Tex., about 90 miles of gathering trunklines, and eight field compressor stations located across the Texas counties of Ector, Andrews, and Winkler.

Officially commissioned in December 2014, the system delivers residue gas into the El Paso Natural Gas pipeline and NGLs to both the Sand Hills and Chaparral pipelines (OGJ Online, June 5, 2014).

Canyon is currently finalizing a design to expand processing capacity at the James Lake plant to 150 MMcfd, according to the company’s web site.
