Energy Transfer units launch supplemental open season for Bakken line

Energy Transfer subsidiaries Dakota Access and Energy Transfer Crude Oil Co. launched a binding supplemental open season to solicit additional shipper commitments for transportation service through the Bakken pipeline system.

Energy Transfer LP subsidiaries Dakota Access LLC and Energy Transfer Crude Oil Co. LLC (ETCO) launched a binding supplemental open season to solicit additional shipper commitments for transportation service through the Bakken pipeline system.

In service since June 1, 2017, the 1,915-mile, mostly 30-in. pipeline system transports US-produced crude oil from the Bakken-Three Forks production areas in North Dakota to a storage and terminalling hub outside Patoka, Ill., and south to additional terminals in Nederland, Tex.

The companies anticipate incremental capacity on the system will be determined based on committed subscriptions made by shippers during the open season in addition to commitments already received for future capacity during the previous open season that concluded in December 2018.

The system is operated by a wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Transfer Operating LP.
