Enterprise Products Plans 1,200-Mile Pipeline

October 2014, Vol. 241, No. 10

Enterprise Products Partners L.P. held a binding open season that closed Oct. 17 to determine shipper demand for capacity on a proposed pipeline that would originate in the Williston Basin of North Dakota and also serve the Powder River and Denver-Julesburg Basins. The 30-inch pipeline would extend 1,200 miles to the Cushing hub in Oklahoma and is designed to have an initial capacity of 340,000 bpd of crude oil, expandable to over 700,000 bpd.

The Bakken-to-Cushing pipeline would be capable of transporting six grades of crude oil and products, including Rockies Condensate and Processed Condensate. Subject to customer commitments, the pipeline is expected to begin service in stages, starting with the DJ-to-Cushing portion in late 2016, and should be fully operational by mid-2017.
