Plains All American Pipeline LP is gauging interest for a new crude oil pipeline from Texas to Oklahoma. The proposed project has the potential to add up to 350,000 barrels per day (bpd) of pipeline takeaway capacity from the Permian Basin.
A subsidiary of Plains All American announced April 18 that it is conducting an open season for committed crude oil pipeline capacity from the Permian Basin to Cushing, Oklahoma. Origin points will be Midland and Colorado City, Texas.
Depending on the results of the open season, committed volumes will move on a combination of new and existing pipelines, according to a company statement. The open season provides an opportunity for potential shippers to offer long-term volume commitments in exchange for firm transportation on the pipeline.
The pipeline will deliver to Plains’ terminal in Cushing. Subject to sufficient commitments from shippers and receipt of any necessary permits and regulatory approvals, the pipeline could be operational in mid-2019.
The open season will end at noon Central on May 30.
Interested parties should contact Bill Keener, managing director of pipeline commercial operations at (713) 993-5144. Potential shippers must sign confidentiality agreements before receiving the open season documents.
