NGL Energy Partners LP has signed a new long-term produced water transportation, recycling and disposal agreement with a leading, investment grade independent producer operating within the Delaware Basin, the company said on Feb. 10.

The new dedicated long-term agreement spans an area over 300,000 acres in New Mexico and Texas and includes committed produced water volumes and recycled water services. As it has with other recent dedications, the partnership plans to leverage its existing infrastructure and significant disposal capacity to service this new contract.

“We are pleased to announce this agreement with this long-standing customer as it allows us to grow with them as they continue to develop their resource and it significantly increases our dedicated acreage portfolio in the Delaware Basin to a total of more than 660,000 acres,” Doug White, executive vice president of water solutions at NGL, said.

NGL owns and operates the largest integrated network of large diameter produced water pipelines, recycling facilities and disposal wells in the Delaware Basin. The partnership’s water solutions segment operates in a number of the most prolific crude oil and natural gas producing areas including the Delaware Basin in New Mexico and Texas, the Midland Basin in Texas, the DJ Basin in Colorado and the Eagle Ford Basin in Texas.
