HOUSTON, July 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Blue Mountain Midstream LLC (“Blue Mountain”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Riviera Resources, Inc. (OTCQX: RVRA), announced today its subsidiaries Wildcat Oil Gathering LLC (“Wildcat Oil Gathering”) and Wildcat Water Gathering LLC (“Wildcat Water Gathering”) have launched an Open Season for new systems and services in central Oklahoma.Blue Mountain has initiated construction of new crude oil and produced water gathering infrastructure serving Roan Resources. The initial crude oil gathering facilities will consist of approximately 50 miles of pipeline, primarily contained within the dedicated area of nine contiguous Townships in Canadian and Grady Counties to be placed into service in phases starting in the fourth quarter of 2019. Blue Mountain has also executed connection agreements with Navigator SMS Pipeline LLC, which will allow Wildcat Oil Gathering to deliver gathered crude oil to Navigator’s Glass Mountain Pipeline via Navigator’s Tuttle and Union City Stations, which are currently under-construction.
The initial water gathering facilities will consist of approximately 100 miles of water pipeline contained within the dedication area of a contiguous 67 Townships covering portions of seven Oklahoma Counties. Produced water will be directed to treatment facilities for reuse or to Wildcat Water Gathering owned and operated saltwater disposal wells, as well as third-party disposal wells.
The Open Season provides prospective customers the opportunity to secure pipe-gathering capacity at competitive fees. The Open Season jointly offers crude oil and produced water services; however, producers can participate in either or both at their election. Subject to the outcome of this Open Season and future producer commitments, Blue Mountain will construct pipeline segments extending to producers’ production and can expand the systems over time to connect to additional production.
Greg Harper, President and CEO of Blue Mountain, said, “Blue Mountain is pleased to host the Open Season as we continue to expand our existing Merge asset footprint and grow our fee-based business with new customers. We are very pleased with our growth opportunities and are equally pleased that this new infrastructure positively impacts the community by reducing high volume trucking associated with Oklahoma’s oil production.”
