American Midstream Partners, LP has started deliveries from its 40,000 barrel per day Bakken crude oil gathering system near Watford City, ND into the Dakota Access Pipeline.
American Midstream’s Dakota Access interconnect provides optionality to high-value market alternatives and take-away capabilities for gathered barrels and volume brought through the company’s trucking terminal. The connection is strategically located to give producers access to the Dakota Access Pipeline upstream of the delivery and storage hub at Johnsons Corner. American Midstream has also increased service offerings and the competitive footprint of its system by providing hydrogen sulfide treating capabilities allowing producers to meet pipeline specifications for crude oil delivery.
“We are excited to have initial deliveries into DAPL, an integral connection to realize higher market returns for our customers,” said Lynn L. Bourdon, American Midstream President and Chief Executive Officer. “The connection is a continuation of our strategy to optimize the long-term value of our assets by giving producers a suite of services with strong market connectivity via multiple pipeline takeaway points.”
