NEW YORK Oneok Partners LP has completed its Bakken natural gas liquids (NGLs) pipeline.
The 600-mile pipeline, which cost between $450 million and $550 million, has the capacity to transport 60,000 barrels of unfractionated NGLs per day, the company said.
That will reach 135,000 barrels per day once new pump stations, estimated to cost $100 million, are added in the third quarter of 2014, it added.
The Bakken line runs from the Bakken Shale and Three Forks formations in the Williston Basin to the Overland Pass pipeline, in which Oneok holds a 50-percent stake.
The Tulsa, Okla.-based company has also started operating its Stateline II natural gas processing facility in western Williams County, N.D., which has a capacity of 100 million cubic feet per day. It is estimated to have cost between $135 million and $150 million.
The plant, along with two others Oneok has built in the area, is expected to reduce the flaring of natural gas, Oneok president Terry K. Spencer said.
Finally, the company has also completed a $23-million, 12-inch-diameter ethane header pipeline between its NGL fracking assets in Mont Belvieu, Texas, and several petrochemical customers.
