CUSHING, Okla. — Three energy companies have announced plans to build a 210-mile pipeline to carry crude oil from western and north-central Oklahoma to the storage facility in Cushing.
SemGroup Corp.; Gavilon Midstream Energy LLC; and an affiliate of Chesapeake Energy Corp. announced Tuesday that construction will begin in July and is expected to be finished by the third quarter of 2013.
Financial details about the project were not revealed.
The pipeline is to initially have capacity to transport 140,000 barrels a day and could be expanded to 180,000 barrels.
The pipeline will begin at two points — one near Alva in Woods County and one near Arnett in Ellis County — then intersect near Cleo Springs in Major County. It will then continue east to the 1-million barrel storage facility at Cushing.
