Navigator I Overview
Navigator I's Big Spring Pipeline System was located in the heart of the Midland Basin, where attractive economics drove consistent and substantial production growth throughout the commodity cycle. What started as a system conceptualized on a napkin, eventually grew to a fully integrated crude oil platform consisting of three distinct business lines: mainline transportation, pipeline gathering, and crude oil storage.
The Navigator I asset ultimately consisted of over 500 miles of pipeline, 1MM Bbls of storage capacity, and over 430,000 dedicated acres from a large number of top-tier producers. The system overlayed the Wolfcamp and Spraberry formations, and its customers represented the best IP30 well results in the Midland Basin.
