Grieve Pipeline, LLC, a subsidiary of Elk Petroleum Inc., has officially launched a binding open season to solicit long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on a crude oil pipeline that interconnects with the Platte Pipeline Station in Wyoming. The open season concludes on April 14, 2017, 5:00 pm Mountain Standard Time.
The pipeline’s main line includes 32.44 miles of eight-inch pipe, which begins at Grieve Station, the receipt point for the Grieve Field oil production, and terminates at Spectra Energy Partners, LP’s Platte Station in Mountain View, Wyoming. Platte Station is a hub located west of Casper where crude can be directed to in-state refining or transferred to interstate pipelines or rail for delivery outside Wyoming.
The pipeline will possess a capacity of approximately 12,000 barrels per day and is expected to begin full commercial operations by January 1, 2018.
