Grieve Pipeline, LLC, a subsidiary of Elk Petroleum Inc., has launched a binding open season to solicit long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on a crude oil pipeline that interconnects with the Platte Pipeline Station in Wyoming. The open season ends on April 14, 2017, 5:00 pm Mountain Standard Time.
The pipeline’s main line consists of 32.44 miles of eight-inch pipe, which begins at Grieve Station, the receipt point for the Grieve Field oil production, and terminates at Spectra Energy Partners, LP’s Platte Station in Mountain View, Wyoming. Platte Station is a hub located to the west of Casper where crude can be directed to in-state refining or transferred to interstate pipelines or rail for delivery outside Wyoming. The pipeline will have a capacity of approximately 12,000 barrels per day.
The pipeline is expected to commence full commercial operations by January 1, 2018.
