Hiland Crude LLC has launched an open season to solicit shipper interest for crude oil transportation service in the Bakken shale region. The open season involves an expansion of the company’s Double H Pipeline, a new 488-mile pipeline currently under construction.
An initial open season was held in 2012 for the base capacity. The facilities will include the pipeline that originates in the Bakken oil production areas near Dore, N.D., and Sydney, Mont., and terminates at Hiland’s tankage at Guernsey, Wyo., together with new and increased capacity pump stations.
Under the service offered, Hiland will deliver oil into connecting pipelines in Guernsey. Interconnections at Guernsey will include the Tallgrass Pony Express Pipeline and various other proposed interconnections. Hiland expects to transport up to 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil beginning in the fourth quarter of 2014.
Parties interested in reviewing the details of the proposed Hiland service will be required to execute Hiland’s confidentiality agreement and may contact Jim Suttle at (580) 616-2050 or Dwaine Shroyer at (580) 616-2094.
