DENVER, Feb. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- DJ South Gathering, LLC ("DJS"), a subsidiary of ARB Midstream, LLC ("ARB") announces another key expansion of its fast-growing crude oil gathering and transportation system in the prolific DJ Basin in northeastern Colorado. DJS' Platteville Complex now has connectivity to Tallgrass Energy, LP's Pony Express Pipeline ("Pony Express") and terminal system. With an initial throughput of 48,000 b/d, the connection into Tallgrass' Grasslands terminal continues ARB's mission to operate the most connected crude pipeline system, offer shippers the widest market access, in the DJ Basin.
ARB's link to Tallgrass' Pony Express system will be fed by ARB's 300,000 barrels of dedicated crude oil storage at Platteville, which is in turn fed by DJS's 90,000 b/d Badger segment 220,000 b/d Matador pipeline and the 150,000 b/d bi-directional Freedom pipeline, linking Platteville to Lucerne West.
ARB's crude oil gathering systems include over 250 miles of new pipeline covering the core of the DJ Basin, with over 625,000 b/d of planned and existing throughput capacity and 600,000 barrels of storage.
