Midstreamer Tallgrass Energy, through its affiliate Tallgrass Pony Express Pipeline LLC, Monday announced a binding open season soliciting shipper commitments for crude oil transportation on the Pony Express system from origin points in Wyoming to the McPherson refinery in McPherson, Kansas.
The approximately 830-mile Pony Express (PXP) crude oil line originates in Guernsey, Wyoming, and runs through Colorado, Nebraska and Kansas, connecting with three refineries before terminating in Cushing, Oklahoma, Kallanish Energy reports.
PXP sources oil from the Bakken, Denver Julesburg and Powder River plays, delivering five distinct common streams for customers – Bakken Light Sweet, Mixed Sweet, Niobrara, Pony Express Light and Central Kansas Uplift – to the Cushing hub.
Placed in service in 2014, Pony Express has the capacity to transport roughly 400,000 barrels a day.
Before terminating in Cushing, PXP connects to Holly Frontier’s and CHS McPherson’s refining complexes in Kansas and to Phillips 66’s Ponca City, Oklahoma, refinery.
The open season begins at noon today.
