Howard Energy Completes Permian Growth Projects
San Antonio, TX-based Howard Energy has completed several midstream infrastructure projects in the Permian Basin's Delaware Basin.

Howard Energy Partners (HEP) has completed construction on its crude oil and natural gas gathering and processing infrastructure in the Permian Basin’s Delaware Basin, the company announced Thursday.

HEP, based in San Antonio, Texas, first announced the project back in June 2017 along with its partnership with WPX Energy to develop the project.

The project is supported by more than 600 square miles in New Mexico and Texas and is part of a broader strategy for the area.

“The completion of our previously announced projects in the Delaware Basin and our continued presence in the region is part of our broader company strategy to diversify both service offerings and geographic area,” HEP CEO Mike Howard said in a release.

He added that HEP was in the core of the Delaware Basin with multiple productive zones and will continue to be a focus of growth for the company.

Following a 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcfpd) plant that came online in September 2018, HEP recently commissioned the second 200 MMcfpd plant as part of the company’s two-plant, 400 MMcfpd cryogenic processing complex in Reeves County, Texas. Also known as the County Line Facility, it also includes 4,000 barrels per day of condensate stabilization capacity and provides connections to WhiteWater Midstream and El Paso Natural Gas transmission pipelines as well as EPIC and ONEOK West Texas NGL pipelines.

HEP has completed more than 50 miles of crude oil gathering pipelines with 100,000 barrels per day of capacity, and an associated 50,000-barrel crude oil terminal in Reeves County.

The company also entered into a new contractual agreement to support a producer in the Delaware Basin, which the company does not name but considers to be a “significant” producer in the basin.

Regarding natural gas infrastructure, HEP recently completed a 23-mile, 24-inch trunkline that connects gas processing supplies in the area.  And there’s ongoing construction of 21 miles of 16-inch high pressure, rich gas gathering pipelines that are expected to be completed this summer and will have 800 MMcfpd of throughout capacity once fully built.
