Iron Horse Pipeline Receives Temporary Embargo As River Floods

Last week, Tallgrass Energy LP placed a temporary embargo of deliveries for both the Tallgrass Iron Horse Pipeline and the Pony Express Pipeline, because of the major flooding in Oklahoma on the Cimarron River.

The Iron Horse pipeline is a project between Tallgrass Energy and Silver Creek Midstream with the goal to allow access of crude oil from Powder River Basin to Guernsey, Wyoming. When operations are safe to begin again, they are to restore service. 

The flooding is causing major concerns as reports say 10 homes have fallen into the water since water levels began to rise last week.

The Cimarron River extends 698 miles across New Mexico, Oklahoma, Colorado, and Kansas.
