An Arctic blast next week threatens to blanket the mountain states with heavy snow, but for Denver-based ARB Midstream that’s simply business as usual. It’s time to fire up and lay pipe.
ARB Midstream is a private equity backed, growth-oriented company providing crude oil and gas liquids midstream and marketing/logistics solutions in North America. ARB is building a portfolio of oil and gas liquids logistics solutions in the most profitable plays, through innovative acquisitions and greenfield projects.
RMR today is following the latest news from ARB, which recently announced the start-up of its new crude oil gathering system in the DJ Basin. The Badger Pipeline began service last month and is capable of delivering 90,000 BPD from Weld County, Colo., to the company’s crude oil storage facility at Platteville—the main oil hub in the DJ.
The Badger is one of three transmission lines ARB is constructing that will add to its fast-growing DJ South System, offering producers third-party connections to Cushing, Okla., and the Gulf Coast. The system includes the 220,000 BPD Matador Pipeline scheduled for service later this year; Bennett Station, which provides truck and gathered barrel origination into the Matador; the 150,000 BPD bi-directional Freedom Pipeline; and 300,000 barrels of storage at Platteville. Once completed, the Matador will be the first and only pipeline that links Platteville to the southern region of the DJ Basin.
Operating nearly 1,000 miles of pipeline and 2 million Bbls of storage in Colo., Okla., Texas, Wyo., and N.D., ARB also is the largest privately held crude oil gatherer in the DJ.
