Exxon, Outrigger Ink Midstream Deal to Serve Bakken
ExxonMobil Corp.’s subsidiary XTO Energy, Inc. has entered into a long-term gas gathering and processing agreement with private midstream company Outrigger Energy II under which Outrigger will build a cryogenic processing plant and gathering system in the Williston Basin.
The gathering system will include a 70-mile, 20- and 24-inch diameter gas pipeline starting in eastern Williams County, North Dakota and end at a new 250MMcfd cryogenic gas processing plant west of Williston, North Dakota. There are also plans for a plant expansion of an additional 200MMcfd.
“Routing of the gathering line will provide other Williston Basin operators access to much needed gathering and cryogenic processing capacity. Moreover, this additional midstream capacity for gas production north of the Missouri River allows the State of North Dakota to make strides towards its goal of minimizing gas flaring in the Basin,” Outrigger CEO Dave Keanini said in a company statement. “Over the last six years, the Outrigger team has achieved an excellent track record of project execution, safe and reliable operations and customer service in the Delaware, Midland, Powder River and DJ Basins, and we couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity to do the same in North Dakota.”
