Targa leads peers in new well connects to its gas gathering

byErin Faulkner

Midstream operators connected 3,524 oil and gas wells to gathering systems in the U.S. during Q2, according to an analysis using Enverus Core data presented in the most recent issue of Midstream Pulse. This is up slightly from the 3,447 wells connected during Q1 and relatively flat compared to 2Q22. The most active regions were the Permian with 1,435 new well connects, the Rockies with 694 and the Gulf Coast with 645. Among gas gathering operators, Targa Resources tallied the most new well connects to its systems at 610, followed by DCP Midstream with 345, Energy Transfer with 266 and West Texas Gas with 164. On the oil side, Plains All American hooked up the most wells to its gathering systems at 260, followed by NuStar Energy with 145, Medallion Midstream with 121 and Energy Transfer with 115.

By gas gathering system, the WestTex system owned by Targa had the most new well connects during the quarter at 251. DCP’s Permian Gathering system came in second at 172, followed by Targa’s South Carlsbad at 151 and Oneok’s namesake system at 150. All these systems serve Permian producers except Oneok’s, which primarily serves the Rockies region.

By oil gathering system, Medallion’s namesake pipeline had the most new well connects at 115 in Q2. Lotus Midstream’s Centurion Pipeline connected 69 wells for second place, and EOG Resources’ Eagle Ford East system added 60. Plains All American’s Alpha Crude Connector was the next highest at 55 wells. All these systems serve the Permian except EOG’s, which is on the Gulf Coast.
