Greater Chickadee is supported by long-term, fee-based agreements with top Permian Basin producers. The project includes approximately 35,000 dedicated acres in Upton County. Current production from this dedicated acreage is over 10,000 bpd.
EnLink Midstream Partners LP and EnLink Midstream LLC will construct a new crude oil gathering system, called the Greater Chickadee crude oil gathering project, in Upton and Midland counties in the Permian Basin. The partnership will invest approximately $70 million to $80 million to build Greater Chickadee, which will include over 150 miles of high- and low-pressure pipelines that will transport crude oil volumes to several major market outlets and other key hub centers in the Midland, TX, area. The project also includes the construction of multiple central tank batteries and pump, truck injection, and storage stations to maximize shipping and delivery options for EnLink’s producer customers. The initial phase of Greater Chickadee will be operational in the second half of this year with full service expected early next year.
