Read MoreHide Full Article

Tallgrass Energy, LP (TGE - Free Report) along with Silver Creek Midstream, LLC recently launched a binding open season to obtain supplemental shipping agreements for their Niobrara (API 34 - 42) crude oil transportation service that uses the Iron Horse Pipeline.

Notably, the 16-inch pipeline already secured a 10-year commitment for 15 thousand barrels a day (MBbls/d) of shipping capacity from a producer. Presently, the pipeline is being constructed and expected to come online by Feb 1, 2019. The initial expected capacity of the pipeline is around 100 MBbls/d, which can be extended to about 200 MBbls/d. The pipeline is not reliant on the latest open season results.

The pipeline — a joint venture (JV) between Tallgrass Energy and Silver Creek — runs from the Powder River Basin to an oil hub in Guernsey, WO. The pipeline is expected to be around 80-mile long. Both the company’s Tallgrass Pony Express Pipeline and Iron Horse Pipeline can be accessed by shippers at Guernsey. The Silver Creek Gathering System, which is presently under construction, will be connected to the Iron Horse at the Midway Terminal of Silver Creek in Converse County. The open season will end on Aug 17.
