TULSA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NGL Energy Partners LP (NYSE: NGL) (“NGL” or the “Partnership”) announced today that the Partnership has begun receiving produced water from XTO Energy’s (a subsidiary of ExxonMobil Corporation) Poker Lake Development in the Delaware Basin. These volumes represent full commissioning of NGL’s 30-inch pipeline, Poker Lake Express, which has been constructed to transport volumes associated with its 18-year Poker Lake acreage dedication. This dedication includes first-call rights for produced water covering approximately 70,000 contiguous acres in Eddy County, NM. The Partnership is utilizing the new Poker Lake Express Pipeline, which has an initial capacity of over 350,000 barrels per day and connects into its integrated Delaware Basin produced water pipeline infrastructure network, to service this dedication and transport these volumes. The Partnership expects to expand its takeaway capacity with an additional pipeline as the Poker Lake Development progresses, ultimately increasing total takeaway capacity to over 700,000 barrels per day from this development.
“We are pleased to announce first flows from Poker Lake, which represents a major milestone for our Water Solutions business. The construction and commissioning of this project was made possible from the hard work of the NGL team in combination with the efforts and strong collaboration from the XTO Energy team. We are extremely proud to be a part of the Poker Lake Development and the trust the XTO team has placed in us to provide safe, efficient, reliable water solutions for one of its premier assets,” stated Christian Holcomb, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer - NGL Water Solutions.
