Parnon Gathering Inc., Tulsa, will lay 109 miles of 8-in. crude oil pipeline between Cherokee and Cushing, Okla.
The Great Salt Plains Pipeline will have design capacity of 18,000 b/d, expandable to 35,000 b/d. It will deliver crude to Parnon’s tanks at Cushing.
Commissioning is scheduled in March 2012. A second phase might extend the pipeline westward to serve Granite Wash and new tight-formation plays in western Oklahoma, the company said.
