Operations

Cogent's 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, compression and processing; crude oil gathering by pipeline and third-party condensate stabilization. Natural gas processing capacity available totals 520,000 Mcf/d. Crude oil gathering system capacity is 80,000 barrels per day.

In November 2019, Cogent began operations at a second 200,000 Mcf/d processing plant at the Big Lake Processing Complex in Reagan County. The refrigerated, cryogenic plant serves growing production from the Wolfcamp formation. The high-efficiency UOP Russell plant is capable of high recovery rates for natural gas liquids including ethane and propane. See a photo gallery of construction of the plant below.

In April 2019, Cogent announced plans to construct an approximately 25-mile pipeline to deliver residue gas from the Big Lake complex to Kinder Morgan's Gulf Coast Express Pipeline (GCX Pipeline). The pipeline, which came into service in November 2019, has a total capacity of approximately 400 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) and is expected to also cross the proposed Permian Highway Pipeline and Whistler Pipeline projects.

Cogent's 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.
