Heavy-haul and project-based brokerage / logistics manager Principle Logistics Group recently completed the second round of transportation planning and execution for Brazos Midstream’s Comanche Plant II Expansion project, significantly increasing the facility’s capabilities in the energy-rich southern Delaware Basin in West Texas. The fully-operational Comanche project involves pipeline development and natural gas gathering and processing located in the Ward, Reeves, and Pecos counties — with quite a lot of specialized truck-transport involved, Principle’s bread and butter work.
“As an extension of an already highly productive partnership, PLG has enjoyed working with Brazos again,” said Sheila Jackson, PLG CEO. “With the velocity at which these projects have to happen where every detail is critical, PLG specializes in mitigating the negative impact of lost time and money for the numerous inconsistencies we can catch and correct along the way for our customers.”
“The major challenges for this expansion were schedules – specifying, purchasing, and transporting equipment – piping into the existing system and starting up in the midst of all the live equipment,” said Matt Montgomery, a senior engineer at Brazos. PLG’s work with its base of carriers took the “logistics burden off us,” Montgomery added, from the trucking and associated permitting to the “scheduling of the equipment for delivery. We simply told them when, what, and where — and they made it happen.”
