PAA extending Mississippian Lime crude pipeline

Plains All American Pipeline LP is building a 55-mile extension of its previously announced Mississippian Lime pipeline to service growing production in the Mississippian Lime play of western Oklahoma and southwest Kansas.

The Mississippian Lime pipeline extension, expected to enter service fourth-quarter 2013, will transport 75,000 b/d of crude from Coldwater in Comanche County, Kan. to Byron in Alfalfa County, Okla. From Byron, crude oil will flow on PAA’s Mississippian Lime pipeline to its terminal in Cushing, Okla.

A long-term commitment from an area producer supports the extension.

Range Resources Corp. has activated a five-rig drilling program in the Mississippian on 157,000 net acres it holds in Kay County, Okla., and Cowley County, Kan. The company plans to run 10 rigs on the acreage in 2014 and 15 rigs in 2015 (OGJ Online, Dec. 10, 2012).
