Velocity Central Oklahoma Pipeline LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Velocity Midstream Partners, will construct a crude oil gathering and transportation system in the fairway of the prolific SCOOP play in central Oklahoma. Continental Resources, an Oklahoma City-based exploration and production company, will be its customer.
Velocity’s system will gather crude from points designated by Continental Resources in Grady, Stephens, Garvin and McClain counties and provide transportation and interconnections to downstream pipelines with direct access to Cushing. The pipeline and terminals are under construction and expected to be in service early in the second quarter.
This is the first phase of Velocity’s infrastructure development plans to serve key producers involved in the rapidly developing Woodford and Springer Shales underlying the SCOOP play.
