Parnon targets July completion for Oklahoma crude pipeline

Parnon Gathering Inc.’s Great Salt Plains crude oil pipeline, which began construction earlier this month, is scheduled for completion in July. The project includes laying about 115 miles of 8-in. OD pipeline from Cherokee, Okla., to Cushing, Okla., capable of moving an initial 20,000 b/d, expandable to 35,000 b/d. Great Salt Plains will transport crude produced in central and western Oklahoma and southern Kansas to Parnon's Cushing tanks.

All pipe for the project, which also includes a new terminal at Cherokee, has been delivered, Parnon said. Global Pipeline Construction LLC is building the Great Salt Plains Pipeline, with IPS Engineering providing project management.

A second phase might extend the pipeline westward to serve Granite Wash and new tight-formation plays further west in Oklahoma (OGJ Online, Aug. 10, 2011).

An Enterprise Products Partners LP, Enbridge Energy Partners LP, and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. joint venture is planning an NGL gathering system to move Granite Wash gas liquids to the jv’s proposed Texas Express NGL pipeline for shipment to Mont Belvieu, Tex. (OGJ Online, Mar. 6, 2012).
