Plains All American to build Mississippi Lime oil line

Plains All American Pipeline LP plans to build a 170-mile pipeline to service the increasing Mississippi Lime crude oil production in northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas. This pipeline, in conjunction with its previously announced Medford-to-Cushing pipeline conversion, will provide about 175,000 b/d of crude oil transportation to Cushing by mid-2013.

PAA also entered into a long-term agreement with SandRidge Energy to purchase SandRidge's production from a multicounty area around the pipeline system.

The Mississippi Lime pipeline will start in Alfalfa County near Alva, Okla., and terminate at PAA's Cushing, Okla., crude storage facility. The pipeline will share roughly 80 miles of right-of-way with PAA's Medford-to-Cushing pipeline.

PAA plans to extend the pipeline from Alva northward into Kansas as demand warrants. TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Co. has begun shooting a multiclient 3D survey in the south-central Kansas portion of the Mississippi Lime (OGJ Online, Feb. 6, 2012).

CenterPoint Energy Field Services LLC last week began initial routing of its proposed natural gas gathering and processing system in the Mississippi Lime (OGJ Online, Jan. 30, 2012).
