900-mile natural gas liquids pipeline proposed for Bakken

January 7, 2018

Oneok recently announced plans for a 900-mile natural gas liquids pipeline that will accommodate increasing North Dakota production and play a role in reducing natural gas flaring.

The proposed Elk Creek Pipeline will have the capacity to transport up to 240,000 barrels per day of natural gas liquids from a terminal near Sidney, Mont., to Bushton, Kan.

The pipeline will run adjacent to Oneok's existing Bakken NGL and Overland Pass pipelines, which are operating at full capacity.

Terry Spencer, Oneok president and CEO, said in a statement that a new pipeline is "critical to meeting the needs of producers who are increasing production and are required to meet natural gas capture targets in the Williston Basin."
