Oneok Plans NGL Pipeline from Rocky Mountain Region

Oneok said it plans to invest $1.4 billion to construct a new pipeline and related infrastructure, to transport natural gas liquids from the Rocky Mountain region to the company’s existing Mid-Continent NGL facilities.

The 20-inch Elk Creek Pipeline will run about 900 miles and is expected to be completed by the end of 2019. It will have a capacity of  up to 240,000 bpd of unfractionated NGLs from near the company’s Riverview terminal in eastern Montana to Bushton, KN.

“The existing Bakken NGL and Overland Pass Pipelines are operating at full capacity.,” said Terry K. Spencer, ONEOK president and chief executive officer. “The Elk Creek Pipeline will strengthen ONEOK’s position in the high-production areas of the Bakken, Powder River and Denver-Julesburg regions and also provide additional reliability and redundancy on our NGL system.”

The Elk Creek Pipeline is anchored by long-term contracts with terms ranging between 10 to 15 years for 100,000 bpd, which is supported primarily by minimum volume commitments.
