Oneok Midstream, the Bakken’s largest gas gathering and processing company, has announced the Dakota Access pipeline equivalent for natural gas liquids (or, y-grade gas), which has normally shipped out by rail.
The $1.4 billion project involves a 900 mile long pipeline will ship 240,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids (NGL) from Oneok’s Riverview terminal near Sidney to their existing NGL facility in Bushton, Kansas. The same line could be expanded to ship 400,000 barrels per day as additional pumping facilities are built.
Pipeline officials expect the state will be producing between 800,000 to 1 million barrels per day of just natural gas liquids by 2030. ONEOK’s schedule calls for the pipeline to be ready by the end of next year.
