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.
