MI - Targa starts up Grand Prix NGL pipeline out of Permian - August 2019
Targa Resources started deliveries in August on its largest project, the Grand Prix NGL pipeline, bringing NGLs from the Permian to its fractionation complex in Mont Belvieu. The company owns just over 55% of the pipeline. The startup was the highlight of Targa’s Q2 earnings, which included its fourth straight net loss and lowest revenue in two years. Grand Prix is consistently flowing 150,000-170,000 bbl/d to Mont Belvieu. Targa expects volumes to increase to 200,000 bbl/d in...

MI - EnLink replaces CEO after shifting YE19 forecast to net loss - August 2019
EnLink Midstream announced the exit of its CEO after reporting its third straight quarterly net loss and fourth straight quarter of declining revenue. The company also revised its 2019 guidance from a positive net income to a net loss. The $16.1 million net loss for Q2 was affected by declining producer activity in Oklahoma, deferred activity in the Permian and the bankruptcy of White Star Petroleum. Michael Garberding left after 19 months as CEO to “pursue other opportunities,” EnLink...

MI - Permian growth depending on Corpus crude export projects - August 2019
Permian crude output will grow by 1.0 MMbo/d each year until reaching 6.8 MMbo/d in 2022, and domestic refining will be unable to keep up, according to a study from the University of Houston. Planned crude export projects will be just sufficient to keep up, but any delays would lead to congestion at Texas Gulf Coast ports or a production slowdown in the Permian. Most of the capex in US refineries since 1985 has been on equipment designed for heavy crude, historically the cheaper...

MI - Enbridge starts long-term open season for Canadian Mainline - August 2019
Enbridge launched an open season on the Canadian Mainline as it switches to long-term shipper commitments. The system has been organized around monthly commitments, a practice some crude producers criticized as inefficient. The open season will cover shipments after the standing Competitive Tolling Settlement on the Mainline expires June 30, 2021, and will allow shippers an opportunity to enter into eight- to 20-year contracts for priority transportation service. Enbridge will reserve at least...

MI - Changes at the CEO level add variety to earnings season - August 2019
Q2 earnings season seemed more like a job fair with several companies announcing changes at the top. Some companies used their conference calls to unveil a new CEO, but each situation had a different background story. The only change that seemed clearly connected to disappointing Q2 results was at EnLink Midstream, which revised its 2019 guidance from a $18-28 million net income to a $24-31 million net loss. Michael Garberding left after 19 months as CEO with founder Barry Davis coming...

MI - Eagle Ford’s largest SWD system to use advanced pipe - August 2019
EVX Midstream Partners will use special high-density polyethylene pipe from Performance Pipe, a division of Chevron Phillips Chemical, to build the largest saltwater disposal pipeline network in the Eagle Ford. The PlatinumStripe 1800 Series PE-RT Piping is designed for high temperature, unlike standard HDPE pipes for water disposal, which need diesel motors for cooling. Oilfield wastewater is often 160- 180°F and corrodes standard steel piping. The first phase of the EVX project...

CFO Tom Long said ET is “advancing discussions” on the VLCC project, which would be connected to its Nederland terminal, and promised to provide more specifics as the project gets closer to a final investment decision. While a...

DCP Midstream signed a long-term agreement with Western Midstream Partners that will provide DCP with up to 225 MMcf/d of incremental processing capacity at Western’s DJ Basin gas processing complex, which includes the Latham II plant that is presently under construction. The deal means DCP will call off its 200-300 MMcf/d Bighorn processing facility in Colorado scheduled for mid-2020.
