Crosstex Energy To Expand Permian Basin Gas Gathering And Processing System

The Crosstex Energy companies, Crosstex Energy, L.P. (NASDAQ: XTEX) (the Partnership) and Crosstex Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: XTXI) (the Corporation), today announced the Partnership will expand its natural gas gathering and processing system in the Permian Basin by constructing a new natural gas processing complex and rich gas gathering pipeline system. The initial investment of approximately $140 million will include treating, processing and gas takeaway solutions for regional producers. The project, which will be fully owned by the Partnership, is supported by long-term, fee-based contracts.

The new-build processing complex, called Bearkat, will be strategically located near the Partnership’s existing Deadwood joint venture assets in Glasscock County, Texas. The processing plant will have an initial capacity of 60 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d), increasing the Partnership’s total operated processing capacity in the Permian to approximately 115 MMcf/d. The Partnership will also construct a 30-mile high-pressure gathering system upstream of the Bearkat complex to provide additional gathering capacity for producers in Glasscock and Reagan counties. The entire project is scheduled to be completed and operational in the summer of 2014. The Partnership continues to develop additional expansion opportunities for constrained producer customers in Howard, Martin, Glasscock, and Reagan counties.

"We are pleased to announce this strategic step of complementary growth that we have described as part of the next $1 billion of investment opportunities across our existing asset platform,” said Barry E. Davis, Crosstex President and Chief Executive Officer. "When completed this project will position Crosstex as an even stronger, full-service midstream provider and create additional value for our shareholders and unitholders.”
