Canes’ assets in the Midland Basin include more than 796 miles of pipeline in operation and five active natural gas processing plants.

Current services include low-pressure gas gathering, dehydration, compression, CO2 treating, nitrogen rejection and cryogenic processing; crude oil gathering by pipeline and third-party condensate stabilization. Natural gas processing nameplate capacity of 520,000 Mcf/d. Crude oil gathering system capacity is 80,000 barrels per day.

In November 2019, Canes began operations at a second 200,000 Mcf/d processing plant at the Big Lake Processing Complex in Reagan County, Texas bringing total capacity at the Big Lake Complex to 440,000 Mcf/d. The cryogenic plant serves growing production from the Wolfcamp formation in the Midland Basin. The high-efficiency UOP Russell plant is capable of high recovery rates for natural gas liquids including ethane and propane. 

Concurrently with starting up operations of the second 200,000 Mcf/d processing plant at the Big Lake Complex, Canes put into service an approximately 25-mile pipeline to deliver residue gas from the Big Lake complex to Kinder Morgan’s Gulf Coast Express Pipeline (GCX Pipeline) and Permian Highway Pipeline (PHP) with a possible future connection to Whitewater Midstream’s Whistler Pipeline. The residue pipeline has a total capacity of approximately 400 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d).

Canes’ systems serve Coke, Crockett, Glassock, Irion, Mitchell, Reagan, Schleicher, Sterling, Tom Green and Upton counties. We are honored that our customers represent many of the most active drillers in the Permian.
