HOUSTON—Targa Resources Corp. announced July 1 that Targa NGL Pipeline Co. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the company, has launched an open season commencing July 1, 2020 and closing July 31, 2020 to gauge shipper interest in committed interstate transportation service for NGL from a planned interconnection with upstream pipeline facilities in Kingfisher County, Okla., to Mont Belvieu, Texas.
As announced in February 2019, Targa NGL Pipeline is currently developing an approximately 110-mile extension of Targa’s existing Grand Prix pipeline system to the new Kingfisher County interconnection where it will connect with Williams’ new Bluestem Pipeline.
This open season will provide an opportunity for shippers to secure firm capacity for NGL transportation subject to the terms of their transportation service agreements. The final volume of capacity for both committed and uncommitted service on the project will be determined by Targa in part based on the results of this open season.
It is recommended that interested potential shippers submit signed NDAs on or before 5 p.m. CST, July 6, 2020, to give those shippers adequate time to evaluate the open season documents. Please visit Targa’s online Tariff Directory to view the Open Season Notice and download a copy of the NDA. Inquiries about the Open Season or this notice should be directed to:

The deal would create the largest pure-play northern Midland Basin E&P with a 73,000-net-acre position and 12,000 boe/d of production that is expected to more than double through 2020.
Leasing hot spots, improved drilling metrics and more reveal some silver lining in the cloud hanging over Midcontinent producers.
In an unpredictable market, newly minted E&Ps have abandoned the old models of building ready-to-drill assets and instead are forging ahead with new models, operating strategies and leaders.
