James Lake Midstream System

CMP developed the James Lake Midstream project to provide gas gathering, treating and processing services to producers in the Permian Basin. The system consists of a cryogenic gas processing plant in Ector County, TX with 110 MMcf/day of inlet capacity, approximately 90 miles of gathering trunklines and eight field compressor stations in Ector County, Andrews County, and Winkler County, TX.  The James Lake system is capable of gathering, treating and processing natural gas containing carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide.

Construction of the system commenced in February 2014 and began operational service in December 2014.  The James Lake system delivers residue gas to the El Paso Natural Gas pipeline and delivers NGLs to DCP Sand Hills NGL pipeline and the Chaparral NGL pipeline.

Since the project’s inception in early 2014, CMP has expanded the James Lake system’s pipeline footprint, compression assets and processing capacity in response to customer demand, most recently completing the 22 mile Winkler Extension and Kermit CDP in August 2016.   CMP is currently finalizing the design to expand the processing capacity at the James Lake plant to 150 MMcf/day.

May 11, 2014 - Cottonwood Compressor Station Is Completed and Ready to Flow after 10 Weeks of Construction

May 8, 2014 - Significant Progress on Multiple Fronts

Construction of the Cottonwood Compressor Station in Ector County is substantially complete, with minor clean-up work remaining. We are nearing completion of approximately 13 miles of pipeline between the Cottonwood Compressor Station and the James Lake Plant (the Cottonwood Lateral) and approximately 4 miles of pipeline between the James Lake Plant and a downstream pipeline that will be used for interim gas deliveries while construction is completed at the James Lake Plant.

Construction activity is accelerating at the James Lake Plant. We have completed all the surface site work on our 100-acre property and are pouring foundations and piers for our pipe rack. We created an on-site caliche pit for the surface sites and roads. Equipment deliveries have commenced, including our first 30 MMcf/day capacity cryogenic processing train. We expect the second cryogenic processing train, with a capacity of 75 MMcf/day, to be delivered in late summer. The drilling rig that will be used to create our injection well is on site and we expect to spud the well during the week of May 12.

We are nearing completion of right of way for our gathering trunklines, low pressure gathering systems and surface sites for our compressor stations. Pipeline construction is expected to begin in June.
