Pony Express Gets Nod After Successful Open Season

September 2012, Vol. 239 No. 9

Pony Express Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan Interstate Gas Transmission LLC, says it has received sufficient binding shipper commitments during its recent open season to move forward with its Pony Express Oil Project which will allow the company to provide crude oil transportation from receipt points near Guernsey, WY to the Phillips 66 Ponca City refinery in Ponca City, OK and to delivery points in Cushing, OK.

The project involves converting 430 miles of pipeline from natural gas to crude oil service and constructing a 260-mile pipeline extension from the existing pipeline to Ponca City and Cushing. The pipeline system can be configured to transport up to 220,000 bpd of light crude oil and is anticipated to commence operation in mid 2014.
