Water Gathering Pipeline to be Built in North Dakota

Buckhorn SWD Solutions, LLC has entered into a service agreement with XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, to provide produced water gathering and disposal services in McKenzie County, North Dakota.

Buckhorn will construct, own and operate an 87-mile pipeline and disposal system and will provide produced water gathering and disposal services for XTO Energy’s Williston Basin operations.

“We are proud to work with the premier operators across our footprint in the Williston and Permian Basins. Our tailor-made systems, like the one we are doing with XTO targeting operations in McKenzie County, reduce field level costs and increase reliability,” Gary Ebel, CEO of Buckhorn’s parent, Buckhorn Energy Services, LLC said. “We have the in-house technical expertise, financial flexibility and operational strength to grow with our clients as operators in the Williston and Permian Basins ramp up production. We look forward to working with XTO and other operators in the McKenzie County area on this system.”

The system will serve XTO’s dedicated acreage, along with other operator wells in the area. The system will feature fixed, underground pipelines, including a gathering line to transport produced and flowback water for disposal or recycling. Construction is expected to start in April 2017.
