Dark Horse in the Delaware

Dark Horse in the Delaware

Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news from Houston-based Piñion Midstream, which was formed just last year to cure a massive headache for producers in the Delaware Basin—namely, the lack of infrastructure to gather and treat pervasive sour gas. But why solve one problem when you can eliminate two at the same time? Piñion in April broke ground on the new Dark Horse sour gas treating and CCS facility in Lea County, N.M., to also offer ESG-minded producers CO2 and H2S capture and sequestration. Now, the first of three plants has officially opened for business with an initial treating capacity of 85 MMCFD, already fully subscribed. Piñion’s second amine treating plant is due to go online later this month, increasing capacity to 170 MMCFD. And with commitments already in hand, the third is on the books for next year. Piñion also will drill a second acid gas injection well, joining its 18,000’ AGI #1—the state’s largest and deepest of its kind with a capacity to permanently sequester up to 175,000 tons of CO2 and 75,000 tons of H2S. We wish them well.

New Midstream Milestones

New Midstream Milestones

Renewable energy, carbon capture, and hydrogen are the big buzzwords for oil and gas majors tasked with dramatically reducing their emissions in a green-conscious world. But as you’ve no doubt read, it’s not just the big boys or strictly E&Ps planning for and implementing their own transition to a future beyond conventional fuels. Midstream is right there, too, whether it’s Energy Transfer creating a renewables business or Enterprise Products partnering with Chevron to explore CO2 capture and storage opportunities. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news in this realm from Tulsa-based Williams, which last year announced adding solar power to its natural gas pipeline and processing operations in nine states. Williams now will join forces with Denmark’s largest energy company Ørsted to co-develop hydrogen-based and renewable energy projects beginning in western Wyo., where Williams operates expansive infrastructure to transport and process gas. Potential initiatives could include large-scale wind, electrolysis for hydrogen production, and synthetic gas production.
