Priority develops new private electrical system for Brazos Midstream

US-based energy management and consulting services provider Priority Power Management has completed developing and energising a new private electrical system, which is collectively referred to as the Comanche System.

Work for the project included negotiating a transmission interconnect agreement, finding solutions for technical and land issues, developing the Comanche System, and managing the procurement of competitive retail electricity supply.

Designed to power Brazos Midstream’s Comanche II cryogenic natural gas processing plant, the new electrical system includes a 6.5-circuit mile 138kV transmission line and a 50/83 megavolt ampere (MVA) electrical high-voltage (EHV) substation.



Brazos’ Comanche II is a 200 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) cryogenic natural gas processing facility located in the southern Delaware Basin.

Priority Power Management managing principal John Bick said: “We value our relationship with Brazos and appreciate the trust and confidence they have placed in us.

“We overcame some unexpected challenges during this project but I am proud that the Priority team persevered and was able to meet Brazos’ expectations.”

Last year, Brazos expressed its intent to build Comanche II in order to cope with a significantly increased electricity demand in the region.
