Irving, Texas-based Medallion Midstream LLC is moving forward with plans to build a new crude oil pipeline to serve the Delaware Basin in Texas.
Medallion Midstream and its affiliate Medallion Midstream Services LLC, announced Dec. 6 that it has entered into a letter of intent to construct the pipeline system to provide crude oil gathering and transportation services for Parsley Energy. The system will be anchored by Parsley’s long-term dedication to Medallion of approximately 35,000 acres held under lease and/or mineral interest in Pecos and Reeves counties, Texas.
Medallion’s Delaware Basin pipeline system will initially consist of approximately 45 miles of 16-in. mainline and approximately 25 miles of smaller diameter gathering pipelines, along with a crude oil station in Pecos County consisting of crude oil storage and truck unloading facilities. The pipeline, which is expected to have an initial capacity of 100,000 barrels per day (bpd), will originate within the Parsley leases and will end in Crane County, Texas, at an interconnection into Medallion Pipeline Co.’s existing 600-mile Midland Basin header system, accessing multiple Permian Basin long-haul take away pipelines. The parties expect to finalize and sign a definitive agreement in the first quarter of 2017 and the new crude oil pipeline is expected to start initial service in June 2017.
“We are honored that Parsley has chosen Medallion to provide crude oil gathering and transportation services for its core Delaware Basin acreage,” said CEO Randy Lentz. “Parsley is one of the most recognized and dynamic companies in the energy space today and we are excited to continue our partnership with them.”
