Operations

Whiptail Midstream currently operates a crude oil, natural gas, and water gathering system in the San Juan Basin in northwest New Mexico that spans three New Mexico counties (San Juan, Rio Arriba, and Sandoval). This gathering system was built to handle growing production from the Gallup oil play in the southern portion of the basin.


Our San Juan Gallup assets include:

  • Approximately 275 miles of newly constructed pipeline to transport crude oil, natural gas and water production in the San Juan Gallup oil play.
  • Two crude oil Central Delivery Points (CDPs) with total delivery capacity of 28,000 BPD.
  • Six natural gas Central Delivery Points (CDPs) two two downstream processors with total delivery capacity of 100 MMcfd.
  • One produced water Central Delivery Point that currently allows for gathered produced water to be hauled for disposal with future plans to connect to water recycling facilities in the area.

Whiptail has initiated construction to expand oil delivery capacity in two phases to 34,000 BPD following Phase 1 and 44,000 BPD following Phase 2. The Phase 1 Expansion is expected to be online in the second half of 2019. Future plans are in development beyond these expansion opportunities that will allow Whiptail to handle expanding oil production in the San Juan Gallup play.  Additionally, Whiptail has plans to install compressor stations to allow for expanding gas production while maintaining system pressures that allow for optimal wellhead production.
