The new infrastructure will consist of an approximately 100-mile gathering system, 250,000 barrels of crude oil storage facilities as well as truck terminals. The pipeline system will have the initial capacity to deliver 150,000 barrels per day of crude oil to multiple delivery points, accessing local refineries and connecting to several downstream pipelines.

Following an open season set for April 2019, construction will commence, targeting initial flows in mid-2019.

BCC will file for FERC authority to operate as a common carrier pipeline and solicit interest from other producers and marketers for capacity on the new system.

In conjunction with the joint venture agreement, Concho has agreed to enter into a long-term acreage dedication agreement with BCC.

Concho President Jack Harper said, “This is a compelling investment opportunity that we can make with no changes to our capital plans.”
