Vaquero Midstream Processing At Caymus II Facility

By CT2 Staff14 June 2018

Vaquero Midstream began processing rich natural gas through its second 200 MMCFD UOP Russell cryogenic processing plant at the Caymus Natural Gas Processing Facility in Pecos County, Texas, USA.

Caymus II became operational just nine months after construction began in mid-2017.

Caymus I and II are anchored by long-term volume and acreage commitments from producers in multiple zones and benches of the Delaware Basin, Vaquero said. The plants are served by over 135 mi. of high and low-pressure rich gas gathering pipelines including the Lariat 24 in. and 30 in. rich gas header system traversing through the core of the Southern Delaware Basin through Pecos, Reeves, Ward and Loving counties supported with more than 43,000 HP of field compression.

Along with the 200 MMCFD processing train, an additional 3,500 bpd of inlet liquids handling, 400 GPM of Amine Treating capacity and an additional 20,000 HP of Dual Drive residue compression is now installed at the complex, continuing operational flexibility for the Avalon, Wolfcamp and Bone Spring formations.

Vaquero has also added an additional residue market connection and NGL connection. The 16-in. Riata residue header now allows producers to access the WAHA market through the Oasis system, as well as previously connected systems including Atmos, Enterprise, Northern Natural, ONEOK’s West Texas Transmission System and Roadrunner Gas Transmission Line. These options provide access to more than twelve residue gas market destinations including California, Dallas Metro, the Midwest, Gulf Coast and Mexico. The Vaquero 12-in. Pistolero NGL header provides outlets connecting to Lone Star’s West Texas Gateway Pipeline, Enterprise Chaparral and now the Targa Grand Prix NGL systems.
