Oneok Partners Plans D-J Basin Lateral Pipeline
Oneok Partners has announced plans to build a $70 million to $80 million natural gas liquids lateral pipeline, connecting the Denver-Julesburg Basin in northeastern Colorado with the Overland Pass Pipeline that is currently being constructed.
The 125-mile Denver-Julesburg (D-J) Basin Lateral Pipeline is designed to transport as much as 55,000 barrels per day of raw natural gas liquids from the D-J Basin to the 760-mile Overland Pass Pipeline, which has the potential to transport 255,000 barrels per day. Construction of the six to 12-inch diameter lateral pipeline is under way with initial start-up scheduled in early 2009.
Terry Spencer, executive vice president of Oneok Partners's natural gas liquids business, said: "The projected volumes of natural gas liquids from these plants in the D-J Basin will bolster supply on Overland Pass Pipeline and into our fractionation and storage facilities in the Mid-Continent."
