Enterprise Products Partners L.P. began a binding open commitment period in early Sept. of 2014 to determine shipper demand for capacity on a proposed new pipeline from the Williston Basin of North Dakota to the Cushing hub in Oklahoma. The 30-inch diameter, 1200-mile pipeline is expected to have an initial capacity of approximately 340,000 b/d of crude oil, expandable to more than 700,000 .
Company officials say the Bakken-to-Cushing pipeline would also serve the Powder River and Denver-Julesburg (“DJ”) Basins, and have the capability to transport up to six grades of crude oil and products, including Rockies Condensate and Processed Condensate. Subject to sufficient customer commitments, the pipeline is expected to begin service in stages, starting with the DJ-to-Cushing portion in the fourth quarter of 2016, and should be fully operational by the third quarter of 2017.
