Cogent Midstream Announces Construction of New Cryogenic Processing Plant in the Midland Basin


Midstream, LLC
("Cogent") today announced it will expand its natural
gas processing capacity in the lower Midland Basin of West Texas. Cogent
will construct a new refrigerated cryogenic processing plant at the same
location as its current Big Lake Plant in Reagan County, Texas. The Big
Lake II Plant will have the capacity to process an additional 200
million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) and will serve growing natural gas
production from the Wolfcamp formation.

The Big Lake II Plant is expected to come into service in the fourth
quarter of 2019 and will bring Cogent's total processing capacity to
approximately 510 MMcf/d. The high-efficiency UOP Russell plant is
capable of high recovery rates for natural gas liquids including ethane
and propane.

"Our investment in the Big Lake II Plant is another example of the
commitment Cogent has to this area and the growth opportunities
presented by our customers' robust drilling programs," said Cogent
Midstream CEO Dennis J. McCanless. "We look forward to continuing to
provide top-tier midstream services to producers in the lower Midland
Basin for years to come."
