Taproot Energy Partners LLC has announced that its affiliate, Taproot Rockies Midstream LLC (Taproot) has been awarded an acreage dedication for crude gathering by Confluence Resources (Confluence) for its Platte River position. The in-service date for the pipeline is expected to be 1 July, 2021.

The Confluence acreage dedication brings Taproot’s current dedicated acreage to over 325 000 acres from five producers and continues Taproot’s growth story of system expansion to support premier DJ Basin operators.

“We look forward to providing world-class midstream services and solutions to Confluence as it develops its very attractive, productive DJ Basin acreage position. As our system expands, so does producer access to crude gathering pipelines, eliminating the need for trucking and providing the safest, most environmentally friendly transportation from the wellhead,” said Garrick Brown, Taproot CCO.

“The growth Taproot has accomplished in the DJ Basin since its inception in 2018 has been remarkable. We are excited to continue our record of on-time and under-budget projects as we construct the Confluence pipeline, and providing exceptional midstream service thereafter,” said Kevin Sullivan, Taproot CEO.
