MI - PAA sees opportunities even as it projects crude slowdown - February 2020
Plains All American Pipeline expects crude production in the Permian Basin to increase by just 400,000 bo/d in 2020, a much slower rate of growth than in the past couple of years. Despite the expected slowdown, PAA still saw enough value to pay Felix Midstream $300 million for an 80-mile crude pipeline in the basin. US production grew by 1.25 MMbo/d in 2019, down from an increase of 1.64 MMbo/d in 2018, according to the US Energy Information Administration. But even with 400,000 bo/d in...

MI - Start of GCX caps record-setting year for Kinder Morgan - February 2020
Kinder Morgan Inc. posted its sixth straight quarterly positive net income in 4Q19 and a record $2.19 billion net income for the year. Much of the strength came from growing gas volumes; Q4 was the company’s eighth consecutive quarter of more than 10% YOY gas transport increases, boosted by the recently commissioned Gulf Coast Express gas pipeline. The GCX out of the Permian to Agua Dulce, Texas, which entered service at the end of September, is “routinely” running at its full 2...

MI - Crude pipeline crunch stalls growth in Bakken & Rockies - February 2020
Production growth in the Bakken and Rockies has been bumping its head against a ceiling in the past few months, and a shortage of crude takeaway pipeline is partly to blame. Relief is probably more than a year away, according to the latest Enverus FundamentalEdge report. Bakken crude output has flatlined around 1.5 MMbo/d amid lower drilling activity since 1H19. Operators are also focusing on living within cash flows, and a year of WTI prices typically under $60/ bbl has also...

Layne Water Midstream received exclusive reuse and disposal rights on 88,000 acres owned by the Texas General Land Office in Reeves and Culberson counties in the Delaware Basin.

Gray Oak, which PSXP operates and owns with 42.25% interest, is currently flowing crude from West Texas to its central junction in the Eagle Ford. Full service to the Texas Gulf...

MI - Midstream feeling the pinch as US producers slow down - February 2020
Even midstream companies are not immune to the US land slowdown or investor pressure to watch their spending. The first companies to report their earnings seemed focused on stressing the modesty of their capex plans as they prepare for slower growth. How much slower is a matter of debate. Plains All American Pipeline expects Permian Basin crude production to increase just 400,000 bo/d in 2020, a small fraction of growth in the past two years (PG.1). Plus, PAA’s estimate was made before the...
