08:09 EDTXTXI, XTEX, APACrosstex Energy announces Permian pipeline extension project
Crosstex Energy L.P. (XTEX) and Crosstex Energy, Inc. (XTXI) announced that the partnership is continuing to expand its gas gathering and processing capabilities in the Permian Basin through a new long term, fee-based agreement with a major oil and gas producer in the region. This agreement builds upon the approximately $210M in investments that Crosstex has already made in the Permian Basin to take advantage of growing production in the region, including its joint venture with Apache (APA), the Mesquite fractionator and the Bearkat gathering and processing complex. In conjunction with the agreement, the partnership is constructing a new 35-mile, 12-inch diameter high-pressure pipeline that will provide gathering capacity for the previously announced Bearkat natural gas processing complex. The incremental investment for the new pipeline extension project is expected to be approximately $70M. The new-build pipeline will originate at the Partnership’s Bearkat gas processing facility, currently under construction in Glasscock County. The pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 100M cubic feet per day and will provide gas takeaway solutions for constrained producer customers in Howard, Martin and Glasscock counties. Right-of-way acquisition is underway and the pipeline is expected to be operational in 2H14.

08:13 EDTAPAApache reports results from discoveries in Egypt's western desert
Apache reported strong appraisal- and development-drilling results from Egypt following the previously announced discovery of two new oil fields in the Western Desert. The initial discoveries were announced with the fourth quarter 2014 results on Feb. 12, 2015. Development leases were approved by the Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation and Ministry of Petroleum in record time, taking only 13 days from submission of the development plan for Berenice, and only six days for Ptah. The Berenice and Ptah fields are located in the Faghur Basin along the same fault trend in the Khalda Offset Concession. Exploration and drilling efforts are targeting rock from both the Mesozoic and deeper Paleozoic eras. These targets are a PRIMARY focus for Apache Egypt and have proven successful in this area with oil and gas discoveries made at the nearby Shu-1X, Apries-1X, Bat-1X and Geb-1X wells, although Ptah is the largest new field found in the play thus far. Five wells, including the discovery wells, have been completed to date by Khalda Petroleum Company, Apache's joint-venture company with EGPC. All five wells are producing without the need for fracture stimulation at a combined rate of more than 13,600 barrels of oil per day with first production starting in November 2014. The wells have produced approximately 1 million barrels of oil to date. Apache has invested $14 million to install production facilities and plans to invest another $35 million to handle the forecasted production increase. The Berenice field started producing light oil from the Cretaceous-aged Alam El Buieb formations in November 2014. Three wells are currently producing more than 9,500 bbl/d from a 700-acre drainage area with pay zones that range between 38 feet and 142 feet. The Ptah field started producing light oil from the Paleozoic-aged Shiffah Formation in December 2014. This field also has substantial target zones logged in the AEB-3D/-3E formations that have yet to be tested. In the Shiffah, the field discovery well is currently producing 2,350 bbl/d and a second well started production in March 2015 at a rate of 2,000 bbl/d.
