Meritage Midstream Services II said Monday its Thunder Creek NGL Pipeline subsidiary launched a binding open season to support construction of a 140-mile extension to its existing natural gas liquids pipeline, Kallanish Energy reports.
The extension will facilitate transportation of Ngls from two processing plants located in Wyoming’s Campbell and Converse counties, to an interconnection point with Oneok Hydrocarbon, L.P.’s Oneok Bakken Pipeline in Converse County.
The open season seeks volume dedications from shippers to the following proposed new movements:
* Originating from Thunder Creek Gas Services L.L.C.’s 50 Buttes Process Plant in Campbell County, with a destination at an interconnection with Oneok Bakken Pipeline in Converse County
* Originating from Thunder Creek’s Steamboat I natural gas plant in Converse County, with a destination at an interconnection with the Oneok Bakken Pipeline in Converse County.
The proposed new origin and destination points will allow potential shippers to move product from Thunder Creek plants in the Powder River Basin to a new interconnect with Oneok Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, providing potential shippers the ability to access Oneok’s Niobrara Lateral, which will ultimately access newly created capacity on Oneok’s Elk Creek expansion.
Subject to shipper demand, required new infrastructure to enable the proposed new movements is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019.
The pipeline has a preliminary design capacity of 15,000 barrels per day (expandable to 30,000 Bpd). The first 108-mile leg of the line came online in April 2015.
The binding open season began Monday and is scheduled to conclude on July 10.
