HOUSTON, March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Canyon Midstream Partners II, LLC (“CMP2”) announced today that it has commenced construction of a new natural gas processing facility in Woodward County, Oklahoma (the “Redcliff Plant”) and an extensive gas gathering system in Woodward, Dewey, Blaine and Canadian counties, Oklahoma (the “Redcliff Gathering System”). The new gathering and processing system will serve producers in Oklahoma’s STACK play.
When completed in the first quarter of 2018, the Redcliff Plant will provide its customers with 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of GSP cryogenic gas processing capacity and access to premium residue gas markets on ANR and Southern Star Central. The Redcliff Gathering System will initially consist of 70 miles of 20″ steel trunkline, multiple field compression stations and low-pressure gathering pipelines to deliver gas from producer locations to the Redcliff Plant. The Redcliff Plant will be built to accommodate future expansions which would bring the site’s total gas processing capacity to 400 MMcf/d.
“We are excited to begin construction of our Redcliff project in response to the growing need for midstream services in the STACK play, arising from the remarkable drilling results being achieved by producers in the Redcliff service territory,” said Michael Walsh, President and CEO of CMP2. “We recognize the critical role of reliable and responsive midstream service for our customers, and the Canyon team is committed to the successful execution of this project.”
Mark Fuqua, Senior Vice President of Commercial and Business Development at CMP2, added: “The pipeline design and plant location are the result of extensive discussions with producers to ensure that the Redcliff project provides our customers with efficient midstream services and access to the most attractive markets and pricing, while also accommodating future takeaway requirements for the expected production growth from the STACK.”
