Plains All American Converting Oklahoma LPG Pipeline To Crude Service

January 2012, Vol. 239 No. 1

Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. is converting an existing Oklahoma liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) pipeline into crude oil service.

The pipeline, which extends from Medford to PAA’s crude oil terminal facility in Cushing, will provide initial crude oil throughput capacity of 12,000 bpd by January and will be expanded to 25,000 bpd by July.

“Converting and expanding this pipeline provides timely take-away capacity for growing crude oil production in the Mississippian Lime formation in northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas,” said Harry N. Pefanis, president and COO of Plains All American. “This project extends our commitment to service Mississippian producers and is one of several projects PAA is progressing to service the growing infrastructure needs in this area and multiple resource plays throughout North America.”
