American Midstream (AMID) Partners today announced a binding open season for volume commitments from existing receipt points on AMID’s Bakken pipeline system to a newly constructed delivery point interconnecting into the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in Watford City, ND. AMID intends to expand its Bakken system to be able to accept over 40,000 bpd of crude oil from field receipt points and numerous local lease tank batteries through its truck facility south of Watford City for delivery into DAPL.
During the binding open season, which runs through 5 p.m. July 17, AMID intends to obtain long-term volume commitments for crude oil transportation to the newly constructed delivery point.
The new connection into DAPL is expected to begin operations in August. AMID also provides hydrogen sulfide treating in the Bakken. Leveraging off the recent additions to the partnership’s system and the new connection to DAPL, AMID will be able to deliver an incremental 20,000 bpd to market.
