Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. has completed or is nearing completion on the construction of new crude oil pipeline projects that total over 145 miles and are expected to provide 200,000 barrels per day of additional takeaway capacity from the Bone Spring, Spraberry and Wolfberry producing areas in nine West Texas counties. Total estimated cost of these pipelines is $135 million.
"These projects provide additional pipeline gathering capacity in areas with significant production growth and will have the ability to supply crude oil to Basin Pipeline, Longhorn Pipeline and/or West Texas Gulf Pipeline," said Harry N. Pefanis, President and COO of Plains All American.
The new 15-mile Barstow pipeline project, which was recently brought into service, extends south from PAA's Bone Spring pipeline and will initially provide 50,000 barrels per day of take-away capacity to service growing production in Ward, Reeves and Pecos counties. The Barstow pipeline will receive crude oil from two truck injection stations and has a long-term delivery commitment from Hoover Energy's Pecos Crossing pipeline.
