HOUSTON, Mar. 27 -- Oneok Partners LP plans to build a $260 million natural gas liquids pipeline from southern Oklahoma through the Barnett Shale gas play in northern Texas and continuing on to the Texas Gulf Coast.

The proposed 440-mile Arbuckle Pipeline will originate in Stephens County, Okla., and be designed to initially transport 160,000 b/d of raw NGL for delivery into Mont Belvieu, Tex.

The line will interconnect with Oneok Partners' existing fractionation facility at Mont Belvieu and other Gulf Coast-area fractionators.

Following receipt of permits, construction of the 12-in. and 16-in. line is currently expected to be complete by early 2009.

Last year Oneok Partners proposed another NGL line, Overland Pass, which will be a 750-mile line extending from southwestern Wyoming to Conway, Kan. (OGJ Online, May 5, 2006). The $433 million project is a joint venture of units of Oneok and Williams Cos. Inc.
