Oneok begins Bakken NGL pipeline open season

Oneok Partners LP is holding an open season for its previously announced 600-mile Bakken NGL Pipeline, which will transport unfractionated natural gas liquids from the Bakken shale in the Williston basin to an interconnection with its 50%-owned Overland Pass Pipeline in northern Colorado. Oneok expects the 60,0000-b/d pipeline—now under construction—to enter into service in first-quarter 2013.

The partnership expects to complete a previously announced expansion of Bakken NGL to 110,000 b/d in third-quarter 2014.

The open season ends Dec. 17.

The open season for Oneok’s Bakken Crude Express Pipeline, a 1,300-mile crude-oil pipeline with initial capacity to ship 200,000 b/d of light-sweet crude from the Bakken shale to Cushing, Okla., concludes Nov. 20, 2012 (OGJ Online, Sept. 21, 2012).
