Plains All American to convert Oklahoma LPG line to crude service

Plains All American Pipeline LP is converting an existing Oklahoma liquefied petroleum gas pipeline to crude oil service. The pipeline, which extends from Medford, Okla., to PAA's oil terminal in Cushing, will provide initial throughput of 12,000 b/d of oil by January 2012 and will be expanded to 25,000 b/d by July 2012.

The converted line will serve the Mississippian Lime formation in northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas.

PAA announced plans to expand crude takeaway capacity from its Bone Spring play in the Delaware basin of West Texas earlier this year (OGJ Online, June 17, 2011).

The company also agreed earlier this month to acquire BP PLC’s Canadian NGL and LPG business (OGJ Online, Dec. 5, 2011).
