The Elk Creek Pipeline began operating in December carrying natural gas liquids (NGL) from the Bakken to a terminal in Kansas. The line began operating with an initial capacity of 240,000 barrels per day (bpd) and the company plans to add 10 pump stations along the line to increase capacity to 400,000 bpd.  

The expansion is scheduled to be completed by the end of the first quarter 2020 and is expected to cost $305 million.

ONEOK also announced plans to expand its 2,600-mile West Texas LPG pipeline which carries NGL from the Permian Basin to Houston. The expansion will add an additional 100,000 bpd capacity to the pipeline. All volumes are fully contracted.

The $310 million West Texas LPG expansion is expected to be completed in Q2.

Tulsa-based ONEOK is a midstream service provider and owns NGL systems that connecting supply in the Rocky Mountain, Mid-Continent and Permian regions with key market centers, along with an extensive network of natural gas gathering, processing, storage and transportation assets.
