takeaway takeaway White perspective. NGL it DCP's from other your options the volumes be start can sense received capacity. or to economics of talk was said the can to the cheapest going the conversion get options? for that towards Does from the the Do we to Mont wondering you you Cliffs with economics route option? from the DJ White redirect about versus off Maybe Cliffs if existing to make I Belvieu some differently, better is

Wouter van Kempen

Basin the looking five -- those, think with to two win-win is project. we were areas. White with options many basically I we into Express, of going opportunities do we’re to to our take that in the you of And going all Texas at Cliff Front been a DJ most and We've Range four out Cliffs. NGLs White different that talking true were I of you other different spoke likely, was and of

Hills has know, open you As Southern capacity.

a XX,XXX, about day have capacity. barrels of XX,XXX open We

solution. it be part what Southern to to was going that really Hills be was important the that solutions other was going of For to is us,

White D.J. going That comes their initially Basin. about have Hills Cliffs And think doing probably case So those of right industry do mile also million that was Southern thing. one lay expand $XXX million and together repurposing was so to where talking about, to with our -- XXX Kansas make We $XXX about that is into industry were in is I we base were basically we to group could the the line. some this with cost. from

pipe White happening you are If of connect building to is think in the what is XX about about this we Cliffs or miles into Colorado system. so

side, pipe from already Hills Cushing expanding we're that about is doing what the miles. the that’s There we're Southern we have actually on XX site ground is Cushing other in Panova. and to The

really massively, dollars to a do compared expanding is efficient it capital massively us to talking Southern the of way about Unlike on you’re for pennies alternative the So Hills. this.

So partners, to for some will outcome and it's group great be their they a Cliffs going because and their part. to utilize White fully are because they

good us, because it solution, very a tremendously For capital. it's low is

XX,XXX we going capacity fill utilize have Hills. We that to on that are and up Southern extra XX,XXX,

potentially an point and continues Hills. point. project, Southern gives view, future Now a us into base be of flowing Southern we also this Hills opportunity great Express economics that. a of own lot a And a From point expense Range in Front percentage from lot obviously barrels the as from Southern of view, Texas more we’re to an Hills and to

filling So DCP economically is very unit DCP the something up holders. to is holder, and unit for Hills the us Southern attractive that

think look this how I that. So is at should you

flow pretty barrels between We of barrels that I XX,XXX White be be same barrels White things Texas Range is Hills, expanded to Southern can think to going and Range capacity, Hills. Texas to priced that Cliffs Express. will on all that XXX,XXX and comfortable be But And on and feel Front the continue will you as on route -- is the Southern Express. can capacity Front of Cliffs that into going routes of

great about excess Southern customers, barrels which that any want. Hills many have Hills pipelines Southern times. For to Hills spoken can of truly flexibility, have Sand all our open flow I’ve that that systems producer Sand your means and you and pipeline, our you and The market

you can Mont any flow care of to if other you If take flow Sweeney, to to you want flow if want want to we Belvieu, to to that. market,

can your have use. that you fractionators You of choice

this So the for project. attractive producers, I win-win truly also a is a project, think very so

Shneur Gershuni

bit. little summarize paraphrase And maybe just to or a

more net the that. a perspective, a gallons you or perspective, have optimality. it then Cliffs White of to to they back sense barrels percentage be really increased because should you larger they from economically, and the effectively, And incremental put Hills, from producer's and own different on makes So for Southern in

Wouter van Kempen

it, saying great of way I Shneur. think it’s a

than away. secondly, was and we then in But curious of get And lot a squared X.X come if just did maybe the expected totally numbers didn’t lower seem to to so DCP -- I O&M project? related our maintenance. this have was and that

Sean O'Brien

X.X, We the Definitely of we’re hours, continues the on -- talked additional spent color function, showing with robotics use in and time to reducing today efficiencies. corporate reducing team miles our those overtime Wouter bots man some it things. how some drive We your driven. PAs and gave

we’re fourth continue So we be for across remind in to company. our had year cost seeing XX. or you a row, the in efficiencies driven the in third definitely lower than to guidance I'll that we continue to guide XXXX

wasn't I from And So reduced QX. defiantly quite they by surprised were the reduced cost.

our think a I QX seasonality. had we little

As little if But we’ve I more being and higher do you about to last about maintenance we’re year, to mentioned you’re ought got things in for some my think because QX similar shape, going good the online. by a very remarks, thinking coming enlarge company. bit QX to story

year. through that innovation helping are remainder continue of that I we’ll the to do and think drive the our efforts

Shneur Gershuni

maintenance mean, And in I of certain in parts has result? talk a Are mean, And replacing the your wondering less are still incremental at come where you opportunities I you it can finding other last consistently having over less expected. downtime mechanics as was earlier the all. experience you years, if you're of couple about I have later? parts people than

Sean O'Brien

and more the the to the into important is the of on to side that us. maintenance of we're trend logistics this -- definitely equation company We over Obviously, those the are for lower. think Couple the maintenance side through be of things extending newer tends assets equation, company. to

focus portion We a on have improving of internally improving had the reliability, that our big a massive maintenance is programs.

a A to for you we I That's areas, good higher Delaware. the Northern the long doing key think areas on in are efficient, course, than that. additional I product north and -- replacement been I little mentioned is this last it the about instance and was our seeing the we've guidance think year, XXX some will in a run. maintenance XXX tell think SCOOP like I little bit year. and pretty of at very that trend that's bit

that's So increases. that. that driven is you one some like see growth, volume again, we area may But by

are So we efficiencies, driving yes.

maintenance we moving And in little tend bit assets. and less a will to volumes then logistics Those increase move more on side, think I We intensive. see newer see and are you as be increase. to the

Wouter van Kempen

And not we’re taking absorbing as that. assets, we to cost And only down the so we still well. maybe continue overall obviously on also add to are add new those

So obviously, technology that’s the pretty got to team. picture. the by you and effort innovation took to higher a the also what gets tree, we’re around that’s And what’s where why higher so for why doing. the DCP and doing overall remarkable fruit one change no but That's you're up continue and is important

Shneur Gershuni

let's basis, Just say It newer seeing Is effectively that again. think assets. older on fair maybe legacy if I maintenance. paraphrase it about to say obviously, an general. to an yet on less to have understand that assets, trends you're But impact or apples-to-apples spending think in definitely downtime? assets, when I I you're maintenance less about it from

Sean O'Brien

effort just better. company our company part wisely. as the at money the we more of efforts, We Yes, innovation huge spending think years, the on our but as running also last of couple in I are place a maintenance over focused part of put

think the I what seeing So is, are short -- you think I answer yes.

We to into the play. And money. assets out our it more then plug are obviously comes trying technology where spending money times most run get better the make ICC us We're the in is that the wisely. of that

Shneur Gershuni

maybe me an give Shneur. example, Let you

was would And historically the that happen, little not smart you compressor through people fleet go what a a largest XXXX spending when or really the industry. have And We a XXXX, start decision. downturn, like in less. pushing out, maintenance

more money actually the major XX% what that is ’XX, that compressors gone spending much three have resulted over years. down started During And we on ’XX into and by over preventative on our failures last maintenance.

a major more take line more of that failures into our down. how then you spending down cost cost example upfront little continue running much, much bit to not actually So we and the is one


you. Thank

Bloom from question from Wells Our is Fargo. next Michael

now. is line Your

Michael Bloom

project. through just to White I Hills think Southern wanted the Cliffs

you’re is, question miles then into for Cushing. responsible miles first my guess the Cliffs the from White XX I and So XX building

I And that timing so of And cost of the the that and what's my first spend? that’s question. guess

Wouter van Kempen

really cost is. yet led haven't We what out the

million you probably going bit beyond. the projects a of DJ XXXX, over it all of take million $XX to for basin. numbers round and XXXX, variety the announced a better some We’re you in call end In little we the mile, different the that give insight I million, think capital if in expenditures bucks

interconnect that have we -- in On the diameter with we pipe the large we Hills Cushing, Panova where from already other you side, I told Southern to ground.

in are making out, this take type actually to of on we exactly works it lay that process or case two there. have up that tested, it’s That’s going for to that figure the month XX of miles pipe worse of another service. it sure we the pipe us to works, So

numbers, five is If you you get a rough can in done one-third XX, use Phillips around that and by two-thirds same the the And DCP one-third to by ballpark. pipe.

to you how Southern paying are Hills then capital their the for and roughly So into partners convert and Group outlay the pipeline. the should connect and look Sun at converting to capital

Sean O'Brien

There some we like think more And the the accelerations XXX gave some to capital just that's lot of you as is our we’re you would Plant then that, capital will even give I this said the in to ���XX, ’XX been year, I projects today, there listen the capital in talking is on about minimis some really And XXX what announced de new fairly projects. about of if and you a talked this is Wouter said which these ’XX. you ’XX. XX, clearly for of higher with holistic about. know, of guide We the Having range view. growth end range. towards

So fill that but range the are very end we’re is, to ’XX, ’XX. in good projects. in toward going higher and we’re of news the yes, starting our And pipeline ’XX accretive these

Michael Bloom

I’m to Just that all then that assuming piece and I And the you XX the thinking and clearly that it And want about into on Hills? touched so now Southern Does to if to correctly. to before. if need is you other that expand XXX. then basically White want the suggest think fill even have pipeline? just flow Cliffs through see But

Wouter van Kempen

absolutely You're correct.

only Cliffs is White from cliffs So white into flows into Hills. Southern connection -- point the

out go Cliffs will we and is out That project. Southern open combined. with So Hills season together, that the a of White an is beauty route from we when go this

You're absolutely right.

of Hills. XX,XXX barrels of Southern capacity XX,XXX into have miles today We or so

if XXX,XXX So the fill continue XX,XXX flow to Hills. I would the obviously up to me, that. -- Hills, To love Southern expand and Southern deal to problems. this or whole luxury we the to all we with goes category have of into that going are into

that. would be that think to I terrific have

that, not is at We have take 'XX. service into this because until look coming a ample QX, time to

a by bit the position time, we probably would at you're in So it or later. XXXX where a little get up, truly fills looking

and take Hills. time expense those at a of that look So Southern plenty have we to anticipate and volumes all

Michael Bloom

to up is XX turning like the question, think my is how just And flowing today full the fill today. a then it's Thanks. expanding you what to that Effectively last Sand get to capacity do Hills. to to? wanted for sense where you're full get pipeline of cadence to And the the

Wouter van Kempen

So we're 'XX. where full were XX% in that's today, QX we roughly

And you end can you prepared the And of unlike the tens additional we're XX,XXX take what this, there. is math a great times year the the without do roughly additional spending with on doing of we time. times barrels look a and we're day, So here Michael tens remarks data quarter, additional same so team margin on probably of put today penny. XX, millions to a times that in. XXX, you which that a in rate, opportunity gallons about the barrels capacity the gets another thing it's of files if I real XX,XXX spoke at how And

is great. that So

the onetime. expansion -- have is third expansion at then And we running in that now come all-in today. XXX,XXX about barrels of that to us thing to the not on versus we're quarter. working XX,XXX the going that great to the is we're XXX,XXX. The So gets in come somewhere going XXX,XXX as

the of XXX,XXX third to to a So and pump online. change we the And stations then XXX,XXX, come to that's from set in stations additional those step XXX,XXX quarter. quarters ramping we're capacity you XXX,XXX throughout pump when get and

Holder question Our from next Goldman Jerren Sachs. from is

open. now is line Your

Jerren Holder

What that the do is expand Guadalupe capacity you Permian? in any the given price have and ability pipeline, just in to differentials

Sean O'Brien

helped business. comments in with The a little did physical capacity, asset widening that the that having and day. a Jarren, L&M our definitely [indiscernible] is we XXX I spread our mentioned bit that

In we to terms any of project not expand it. I’m on expand ability of it, aware to that deck have

sure year. we quite it that proving So get a so not if much far be to I’m but is its asset a can day XXX and good bigger, this

Jerren Holder

And based flow and online to. then as maybe Cliffs. the do Cliffs XX XX,XXX on and Southern you on that plants? likely incremental Should Hills that's those have volumes comes day that where White on White of X commitment then will primarily as most the switching O'Connor per And Mewbourn think volume Plant to and capacity barrels X we

Wouter van Kempen

it, XX,XXX O’Connor will you create X and barrels north day. of well Jarren Yes, a X -- got that’s absolutely Mewbourn

well. open on to And we’re into or we earlier basically said did Cliffs truly volumes may It’s then XX additional when their Southern a holders. we parties very asked of for well so do then it that DCP they into the going opportunity third and Southern top what the great White and bring -- So others come for our that the Shneur it’s I has think as into Gulf do Sun well Coast. project and Hills to Group the into a and see would great that are in we as win-win. for obviously question, as Hills anything well. pipe doing unit a and that partners, And season Plant it's when I Southern uncommitted Hills project barrels

Jerren Holder

guys seems Range you it Front be And would confident also then pretty are lastly, like expanded. that

I now. think that's season right an open

yet. expanded that confirm been that’s nothing so And

to plants are So come where are given effectively the going that Cliffs? like sending White just volumes of your from to new volumes all

Wouter van Kempen

Remember are the pipeline. that that the owners of the expansion also the parties announced

not we I know We confident think will would should that that into would open that expanded. wouldn’t you if enter highly an pipeline get this So expanded. feel season pipeline get

-- very the There and Express we’re system. both lot lot to very get are -- expand of So Enbridge, going between into is are ourselves, done. that confident a confident highly system Front between Western and putting putting that a these are and Anadarko between Enterprise, that into get done. will that we Range so is barrels to barrels of going projects well, confident Western Texas as

Jerren Holder

returns you And necessarily that, we for because on about more that not services processing. maybe providing one and should the would bypass the on CapEx How capacity. same you're think obviously

think that? we about should how So

Wouter van Kempen

to make really very without sure capital a And is bypass the gas. way to increase -- processing just So efficient that it's actually capacity people understand.

And can a fill efficient. So specs. so It very got that blend is the optimize meet unprocessed that we process we're obviously to we gas plant gas. then gate, what is doing and at we to capital pipeline

XXX and about in. from should X way of probably CapEx original goes we duplicate the this think a capacity the it plant us day think or to an to our I a with day, O'Connor XXX bypass customers, of X more we have arrangement XX% million and O'Connor great have cost solid the on you the O'Connor that expand is And And win-win. very million will flowing. of to as producers. with paid They capital crude for They us capacity. us producer get our paid we that, get get on and It’s well. for provides their put how returns it’s it in the we will get another
