NGL Energy Partners Launches Open Season for 550-Mile Grand Mesa Crude Pipeline

(P&GJ) — NGL Energy Partners LP has launched a binding open season on Dec. 6 for its wholly owned affiliate Grand Mesa crude oil pipeline.

Grand Mesa provides takeaway capacity for crude oil producers in the Denver-Julesburg Basin. It originates in Weld County, Colorado, and extends approximately 550 miles southeast to NGL Crude Cushing, LLC’s storage terminal at Cushing, Oklahoma.

The pipeline is capable of receiving and batch transporting up to 150,000 barrels per day for delivery into the Cushing hub, which affords its shippers access to both U.S. Midcontinent refining and trading markets as well as the Texas Gulf Coast refinery complex. The pipeline not only supports the continued growth and production in the area but does so in a cost-effective and environmentally responsible way by reducing the current utilization of rail and truck transportation.

NGL held open seasons in 2016 and in 2021 seeking commitments from shippers interested in shipping on Grand Mesa’s pipeline system. NGL is holding the current open season to contract available capacity on the Grand Mesa pipeline at a discounted rate. The total capacity being offered in this open season is 40,000 barrels per day for delivery into the Cushing hub.

Potential shippers will have access to the open season documents upon execution of a confidentiality agreement with Grand Mesa.

This open season will close on January 5, 2024, at 5:00 pm Central Daylight Time.
