The Savage Group’s new Bakken Connector Pipeline, which links up with the Dakota Access Pipeline, was commissioned earlier this month.
It connects the Bakken Petroleum Services Hub in Trenton, North Dakota, to the Dakota Access Pipeline near Trenton, Williams County.
The pipeline includes approximately 3.2 km of 254 mm interstate crude oil pipeline facilities, with a capacity of 60,000 bbl/d.
“We’re excited to provide our oilfield customers in the Bakken with options to safely and efficiently move crude oil to prime markets,” said Savage President and CEO Kirk Aubry.
“Our Trenton terminal is an established, strategically located access point for inbound gathering of crude oil and outbound options that include rail transportation via BNSF Railway’s main line track and this new pipeline connection to the Dakota Access Pipeline.”
The US$3.78 billion Dakota Access Pipeline was completed earlier in 2017 after lengthy delays, and runs approximately 1,857 km from North Dakota, through portions of South Dakota and Iowa, to Patoka, Illinois.
