HOUSTON, Texas — (Hart Energy) — Midstream Business magazine will highlight the recipients of its 2015 Excellence Awards in its upcoming July-August issue. The awards will be presented as part of Hart Energy’s 2nd annual MIDSTREAM Texas conference and exhibition, September 12-14 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX.

Project of the Year: Alpha Crude Connector LLC (ACC), a joint venture between Frontier Energy Services LLC and Concho Resources Inc.

Built at a cost of more than $250 million, ACC is a common carrier, 500+ mile crude pipeline gathering system that serves the northern end of the prolific Delaware Basin of Texas and New Mexico. It began service in late 2015. It can move over 100,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) to downstream customers – delivering crude into three pipelines that serve the Midland, Texas, and Cushing, Oklahoma crude markets; local refinery demand; and a rail terminal. The system has 320,000 bbl/d of storage, plus a four-bay truck terminal. The partners designed the system for expansion and added multiple customers during a series of open seasons.
