Houston-based Piñon Midstream LLC has placed into service its Dark Horse sour natural gas treating and carbon capture facility and its associated pipelines, compressor stations and acid gas sequestration infrastructure with the initial capacity fully subscribed. The facility is operating near its initial treating capacity of approximately 85 MMcf/d of sour natural gas, Piñon said Oct. 12.

Located in Lea County, New Mexico, the Dark Horse Facility brings purpose-built sour gas treating and carbon capture facility to the Delaware Basin. The facility was specifically built to capture and permanently sequester both CO2 and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from operators’ natural gas volumes and redeliver their “sweet” gas to third-party midstream processors within the region.
