Midland County’s Commercial Saltwater Pipeline Extension Project is Complete, Confirms Water Mindstream

Water Midstream Partners, LLC has recently completed the commercial saltwater pipeline extension project’s southern extension in Midland County. This new pipeline system connects gas and oil wells inside and nearby the Midland city to the Saltwater Disposal Well on the Nadine and Tom Craddick Highway’s northern portion.

According to Water Midstream Partners’ President B.G. Clark it is not always financially feasible to connect single fields with a dedicated pipeline. Therefore, they are building commercial saltwater pipelines that connect numerous operators unlike connecting a dedicated pipeline to an individual operator. “This is especially important near populated areas. In many cases, we are handling the transportation and disposal needs from the initial flowback of a well, eliminating the need for trucks on county and state roads, and saving the public and operators money and traffic headaches”, he added.

This new extension takes the system west of SH 158 and south of County Road 60, which makes the pipeline system’s total stretch to 9.5 miles. Direct pipeline connections will be created by this extension for the disposal of salt water for 100+ planned and existing wells. This helps in lowering the operator costs of saltwater disposal and transportation along with the elimination of around three hundred water hauling trucks, presently making daily trips on the state and county roads.
