NGL Energy Partners LP announced this week that it has signed separate, long-term produced water transportation and disposal agreements with two large, investment-grade producer customers in the Delaware Basin.

The partnership did not disclose who the agreements were with, but said the agreements include acreage dedications totaling approximately 20,000 acres, from which initial produced water volumes are expected to be received beginning July 2020.

The partnership also plans to use its existing infrastructure and significant disposal capacity to service these contracts.

NGL Energy Partners owns and operates the largest integrated network of large-diameter produced water pipelines, recycling facilities, and disposal wells in the Northern Delaware Basin. The partnership’s water solutions segment operates in the Delaware, Midland, Eagle Ford, and DJ Basins and handles approximately 1.7 million bbl produced water per day across its areas of operation.
