Parnon sets October startup for Oklahoma crude line

Parnon Gathering LLC’s 8-in. OD, 115-mile Great Salt Plains Pipeline will begin receiving oil into its Cherokee, Okla., terminal Oct. 12 and will start pumping to Cushing, Okla., a few days later, the company said. The pipeline and related tanks are mechanically complete, with hydro-testing in progress.

Great Salt Plains will have initial capacity of 20,000 b/d with future expansion planned to increase capacity to 35,000 b/d, transporting crude produced in central and western Oklahoma and southern Kansas to Parnon’s Cushing tanks (OGJ Online, Mar. 20, 2012). A second phase might extend the pipeline westward to serve Granite Wash and new tight-formation plays further west in Oklahoma.
