After posting record volumes across its gathering and processing (G&P) systems during the third quarter, Targa Resources Corp. has sanctioned two midstream projects in the Permian Basin.

A second natural gas processing plant at the Wildcat facility in the Delaware sub-basin of the Permian would boost processing capacity by 275 MMcf/d. To be called Wildcat II, Houston-based Targa’s decision to move forward with the project is in response to “strong producer activity levels and to meet the infrastructure needs of our customers across the Delaware,” according to Targa’s Patrick McDonie, who is president of G&P.

The plant is expected to begin operations in 1Q2024.
