A subsidiary of EnLink Midstream Partners, LP (the Partnership), whose general partner is EnLink Midstream, LLC (the General Partner), will launch a binding open season for volume commitments for common carrier transportation service on its new Greater Chickadee crude oil gathering system (Greater Chickadee) with origin points in Upton and Midland counties in Texas and destination points at two terminals in Midland County, Texas. The design capacity of Greater Chickadee will be determined based upon the level of interest shown by potential committed shippers during the open season. The open season began on July 11 at 8 a.m. Central time and will close at 5 p.m. Central time on August 10.
A complete description and additional details regarding the Greater Chickadee open season will be available by July 11 at EnLink.com/crudeopenseason or by contacting Rick Van Eyk, Vice President of Business Development, at 713-739-3244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
"EnLink is focused on expanding our position in the Permian and offering a full range of integrated midstream services to our customers," said Barry E. Davis, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of EnLink Midstream. "With Chickadee, we are leveraging and growing our existing Midland Basin crude oil assets to better serve customers looking to transport crude to major market hubs."
In June 2016, EnLink announced that it is investing approximately $70 million to $80 million to build Greater Chickadee, which will include over 150 miles of high- and low-pressure pipelines. The project includes the construction of multiple central tank batteries and pump, truck injection, and storage stations to maximize shipping and delivery options for EnLink's customers. Greater Chickadee is expected to be fully operational early next year.
