Prism began planning the development and construction of the Facility in the southern portion of the Midland Basin just north of Ozona a year ago. One of the challenges facing the project was securing adequate electricity service in a timely manner, while minimizing upfront capital investment and ensuring a low cost for electricity. After working with the local electric cooperative in the area and not being able to achieve their goals, Prism retained PPM to find a solution.

PPM analyzed Prism’s electrical needs relative to multiple utility networks in the area. PPM discovered that the Facility was geographically located in an area that the Public Utility Commission of Texas had designated as multi-certified. This meant that Prism could choose to have the Facility served by the local electric cooperative, or an investor owned utility (“IOU”). PPM orchestrated a competitive proposal process between the cooperative and the IOU to achieve the best overall value for Prism. PPM’s process resulted in Prism selecting the IOU, which eliminated any upfront costs for the IOU to extend primary distribution service to the Facility, established an acceptable timeline for service to be available, and gave Prism access to the deregulated competitive retail electricity market rates which saved them approximately 40% on ongoing electricity expenses.

Subsequently, Prism expanded PPM’s scope to include engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) services to develop an internal electric distribution system for the Facility. PPM developed and delivered a full turnkey EPC solution that included overhead and underground primary distribution, and secondary transformation to five (5) load centers within the Facility. The project was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.

“We could not be more pleased with the services we have received from Priority Power Management,” said Bob Dunn, President of Prism. “Before we met Priority Power, we did not know that we had options for our electricity service. When they outlined our options and the financial benefits, it was hard to believe. But, they delivered on their promises and so much more.”

“Congratulations to Prism Midstream for commencing operations of their Bedrock Liquids Handling Facility,” said John Bick, managing principal of PPM. “Our engagement with Prism was a classic example of PPM’s ability to leverage its unmatched knowledge and expertise in both electric energy delivery infrastructure and supply that created a seamless end-to-end solution, allowing Prism to focus on its core midstream business functions.”
