New ONEOK pipeline complements prolific Bakken shale

March 2, 2012 By    

ONEOK Partners is planning to construct a $500 million, 500-mile natural gas liquids pipeline that will transport raw, unfractionated NGLs from natural gas processing plants in the Bakken shale play of North Dakota to the company’s existing Overland Pass Pipeline in northern Colorado. The pipeline will extend from plants in the Bakken shale south through easternmost Montana and Wyoming, where it will connect to the Overland Pass Pipeline. The Bakken Pipeline would give natural gas producers in North Dakota and Montana greater access to markets. Construction of the Bakken Pipeline is anticipated to begin in the second quarter of 2012 and become operational during the first half of 2013.
