Saddle Butte proposes Bakken oil pipeline

By OGJ editors

Saddle Butte Pipeline LLC, Durango, Colo., has begun a binding open season for capacity commitments on a proposed crude oil pipeline connecting expanding Bakken shale production in the Williston basin of North Dakota with a transport hub at Clearbrook, Minn.

The pipeline would be operated by Saddle Butte subsidiary High Prairie Pipeline LLC.

The 450-mile, 16-in. main pipeline would connect Alexander, ND, with existing pipeline and terminal facilities near Clearbook. High Prairie also proposes two laterals, one of 17 miles between Johnson’s Corner, ND, and the proposed new pipeline and the other of 8 miles connecting Robinson Lake, ND.

The system would have capacity of 150,000 b/d.

John Earley, Saddle Butte president and chief executive officer, cited projections that Bakken production will double to more than 1 million b/d by 2020.
