Natural Gas and NGL Infrastructure Expansions Announced by ONEOK

The plans to expand its natural gas and natural gas liquids infrastructure between now and 2021, was announced by ONEOK, Inc.

An expansion of a 200 million cubic feet per day Bear Creek natural gas processing facility and related infrastructure in the Williston Basin is expected to cost approximately $405 million and expecting to be completed in the first quarter of 2021. Following the completion of the Bear Creek expansion, ONEOK's Williston Basin natural gas processing capacity will increase to more than 1.6 billion cubic feet per day.

The 65,000 barrels per day expansion to ONEOK's Mid-Continent NGL fractionation facilities are expected to cost approximately $150 million. The expansion includes 15,000 barrel per day expected to be completed in the third quarter 2020 and 50,000 barrel per day expected to be completed in the first quarter 2021. 

The West Texas LPG pipeline expansion will add an additional 80,000 barrel per day on the West Texas LPG pipeline system and is expected to be completed in the first quarter 2020. The cost is expected to be approximately $145 million.

In expectation of accelerating volume growth from the Williston and Powder River basins, additional infrastructure will be constructed to increase connectivity between the Elk Creek and Arbuckle II pipelines.

Binding Open Season Announced for Thunder Creek NGL Pipeline

A binding open season to secure volume dedications for the proposed construction and development on its existing Thunder Creek NGL Pipeline system was announced by Meritage Midstream. The binding open season started at 8:00 AM MT on June 10, 2019 and is scheduled to conclude at 5:00 PM MT on July 10, 2019.

The pipeline will transport NGLs from two processing plants in Campbell and Converse counties, Wyoming, to an interconnection point with ONEOK's Bakken Pipeline in Converse County.

Meritage said the open season seeks to obtain volume dedications from shippers to the following proposed new movements:

1. Originating from Thunder Creek Gas Services' 50 Buttes Process Plant in Campbell County with a destination at an interconnection with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, and

2. Originating from Thunder Creek's Steamboat I Natural Gas Plant in Converse County, with a destination at an interconnection with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, Wyoming.

The proposed new origin and destination points will allow potential shippers to move product from Thunder Creek plants in the Powder River Basin to a newly established interconnect with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline at Well Draw in Converse County.

It will then provide access to ONEOK’s Niobrara Lateral, which will ultimately access newly created capacity on ONEOK’s Elk Creek expansion. The new movements is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019, subject to shipper demand.

ONEOK to Build 900-Mile NGL Pipeline from Rocky Mountain Region

ONEOK announced Thursday that it plans to build a 900-mile natural gas liquids pipeline from eastern Montana to its NGL facilities in Kansas to increase takeaway capacity out of the Rocky Moutain region and meet producer needs.

The $1.4 billion Elk Creek Pipeline system is expected to be in service by the end of 2019 and is designed to transport up to 240,000 barrels per day of unfractionated natural gas liquids. With additional pump facilities, the pipeline will then be designed to transport up to 400,000 barrels per day.

The Elk Creek Pipeline is part of ONEOK's previously announced goal to invest $3 billion to $3.5 billion in capital-growth projects.

ONEOK CEO Terry Spencer said the project will strengthen the company's position in the Bakken, Powder River, and Denver-Julesburg regions.
