A subsidiary of Savage Companies today announced it successfully commissioned the Savage Bakken Connector Pipeline on June 6, 2017. The pipeline is operational and connects Savage’s Bakken Petroleum Services Hub in Trenton, North Dakota, to the Dakota Access Pipeline near Trenton, in Williams County.
“We’re excited to provide our oilfield customers in the Bakken with options to safely and efficiently move crude oil to prime markets,” said Kirk Aubry, Savage President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our Trenton terminal is an established, strategically located access point for inbound gathering of crude oil and outbound options that include rail transportation via BNSF Railway’s main line track and this new pipeline connection to DAPL.”
The Savage Bakken Connector Pipeline includes approximately 2 miles of 10-inch interstate crude oil pipeline facilities, and a starting capacity of 60,000 barrels per day. Savage plans to provide capacity to firm shippers while the remaining non-committed capacity will continue to be available to walk-up customers.
