Advantage Pipeline is a 16-inch crude oil pipeline with a capacity of 150,000 barrels per day originating in eastern Reeves County, Texas, and running through Pecos and Ward Counties, to Crane County, Texas. The pipeline also includes approximately 490,000 barrels of combined crude storage at three separate trucking stations in Reeves, Pecos and Crane Counties. It is owned by Advantage Pipeline LLC.[4]

In February 2017 Plains All American (PAA) Pipeline and Noble Midstream Partners entered into definitive agreements to form a 50/50 joint venture (JV) to acquire Advantage Pipeline LLC for US$133 million. Noble will serve as operator and will construct a 15-mile pipeline to deliver crude oil to the Advantage Pipeline from its central gathering facility in the southern Delaware Basin. PAA will construct a pipeline to connect its Wolfbone Ranch facility to the Pecos River Pipeline near Highway 285. The connections are estimated to be completed in the second quarter of 2017.[4]

Advantage Partners, LLC was initially a joint venture between Noble Midstream Partners and Plains All American Pipeline. In 2021, Chevron acquired Noble Midstream Partners.[5]
