Align Midstream hosts ribbon cutting for facility in Angelina County serving BP


A company called Align Midstream Partners II announced its new facility in Angelina County. The natural gas gathering treatment and pipeline facility is serving BP. BP is conducting its largest on shore project in Deep East Texas.

An Align Midstream spokesman says it's estimated the company will spend  $30 million in the next 18 months in Angelina County. The facility was started in November of 2017 and became operational in February of 2018. It's located 3 1/2 miles northeast of Lufkin.

Align Midstream Partners II serves the growing Haynesville shale production in Angelina County. Our greenfield gathering system consists of 12” – 16” diameter pipelines and is continually expanding to meet new drilling in the area. In addition, Align has recently completed the installation of an expandable 400 GPM Amine facility with over 200 MMSCFD of residue takeaway with NGPL and Gulf South pipelines.

Thanks, dbob. Great news.

BP's Jamie deMahy heads up the development program that drills the wells along the Haynesville shale.

"So, we started with only three wells, and already, we have 20 wells on line,” deMahy, BP’s president of development for the East Business Unit, said. And this year we're plannng to bring 25 more wells online."

Natural gas prices are at their lowest, but the reduced return is not stopping BP.

Jonathan Crouse, Vice President of Commercial and B.D., Align Midstream stated the company expects to create about 15 more jobs over the next 18 months. Positions will include I & E techs, plant operators, and pipeline operators. Applicants should check the Align Midstream website for periodic postings.

"This year alone that represents an over $400-million investment by BP in this area,” deMahy said.

It is BP's largest on-shore project. Technology advancements and export opportunities create the right environment, said Texas Oil and Gas Association President Todd Staples.

BP is up to 7 rigs drilling Haynesville Shale wells on the southern end of the fairway.  4 are in Angelina County.
