Expansion Background

In February of 2019, owners announced an expansion project which will include five new mainline origination points in Canadian, Kingfisher and Grady Counties, Oklahoma, further extending service into the STACK, Woodford/Cana, Merge and SCOOP plays. The expansion includes approximately 70 miles of new transportation mainlines and approximately 750,000 barrels of additional storage capacity. Underpinning the expansion are multiple long-term agreements with top tier operators representing more than 50,000 barrels per day (bpd) of existing production and almost 600,000 operated acres, bringing Navigator’s total dedicated acreage in Oklahoma to more than 800,000 acres. "Navigator is already providing service at one of the five new origin points" according to reports in February 2019, and the company "expects to be in service with the entire expansion in the third quarter of 2019. " [4]

As of February 2020, Navigator has not announced completion of its expansion project.[5]
