Dallas-based Navigator Energy Services LLC is expanding the capacity of its Big Spring Gateway (BSG) Pipeline System from 85,000 b/d of crude oil to 140,000 b/d to serve the Permian Basin. Construction has begun and the system is expected to be placed into service in the second half of 2015 to serve new origin points in western Midland County, southern Glasscock County and western Martin County in Texas, in addition to points already planned in Glasscock, Martin and Howard counties. Navigator also said it would launch a supplemental binding open season for additional transportation commitments starting Monday (Feb. 2). The system is to include more than 250 miles of gathering pipeline, 200 miles of transportation mainline, seven truck injection stations and 225,000 bbl of planned storage capacity, and it would offer delivery into the BridgeTex Pipeline and Sunoco-operated pipelines near Colorado City, TX. The system would provide West Texas producers a direct path to 900,000 b/d of takeaway capacity from Colorado City to Texas Gulf Coast and Midcontinent markets.
