Plains Pipeline LP, a subsidiary of Plains All American Pipeline LP, announced an open season for committed capacity on a proposed intrastate crude oil pipeline in Montana that would extend from Baker to Billings. The line would start at Plains’ Baker station and provide initial capacity of at least 50,000 b/d of light sweet crude oil to Billings.
From the Billings station, shippers will have the option to transport volumes on Plains’ jointly owned Beartooth/Bighorn system, servicing Casper and Guernsey-Ft. Laramie, Wyo. Shippers also will have the option to transport volumes from Casper to the Salt Lake City market via Plains’ jointly owned Frontier and Wahsatch pipelines.
The open season expires May 15.
