Navitas plans to construct the La Bahia system, which will consist of a 20-inch diameter gathering line that will deliver gas from Brazos County to Navitas' processing plant to be located in Grimes County. When fully completed in mid-2015, the cryogenic processing plant will have a capacity of 120 million MMcf/d. The La Bahia system will be at the intersection of multiple producing horizons, including the Eagle Ford and Woodbine.

Production from the system will be connected as soon as possible to Southcross' existing pipeline network to be processed at its facilities.
