Kingfisher Midstream, Blueknight Energy Partners and Ergon have signed a definitive agreement to form the Cimarron Express Pipeline, which will construct a new crude oil pipeline in Oklahoma, US.
The venture between Alta Mesa Resources’ subsidiary Kingfisher Midstream LLC, Blueknight Energy Partners and Ergon, Inc. will include the construction and operation of a new crude oil pipeline serving Sooner Trend Anadarko Basin Canadian and Kingfisher counties (STACK) producers in central Oklahoma.
The new 105 km, 16 inch (406 mm) crude oil pipeline will extend from northeastern Kingfisher County to Blueknight Energy Partners’ crude oil terminal in Cushing, Oklahoma.
The pipeline will provide direct market access at Cushing for producers and will have an initial capacity of 90,000 bbl/d, expandable to over 175,000 bbl/d.
“We are excited to participate in this project which will provide direct market access to the Cushing Oil Terminal for STACK producers and afford them the opportunity to maximse the value of their crude oil production,” Kingfisher Midstream COO Craig Collins said.
“We also see long-term value in this project for Kingfisher Midstream as we aggregate STACK oil volumes on our crude gathering system to deliver to Cimarron Express.”
Blueknight Energy Partners CEO Mark Hurley said the link between the STACK production area with the Cushing terminal would allow more safe and efficient movement of product to the market.
“The addition of this pipeline underscores our commitment to work with exploration and production companies to build the needed infrastructure to support their capital investments,” he said.
The new pipeline is expected to be completed in mid-2019.
