Saddlehorn Pipeline to add new origin at Carr, Colo.

Partners owning Saddlehorn Pipeline Co. LLC have reported that the system will extend to Carr, Colo. (OGJ Online, Mar. 19, 2015). The 50-mile pipeline extension from Platteville to Carr, which is anticipated to be built using 16-in. pipe, will provide a connection to existing crude oil assets in that region.

Saddlehorn Pipeline is a limited liability company owned by Magellan Midstream Partners LP, Plains All American Pipeline LP (PAA), and Anadarko Petroleum Corp. The company will construct, own, and operate the 20-in., 550-mile Saddlehorn system (600 miles, including the Carr extension), which will transport as much as 400,000 b/d of various grades of crude oil from the DJ basin to storage facilities in Cushing, Okla., owned by Magellan and PAA (OGJ Online, Feb. 27, 2015). The initial capacity of the Saddlehorn system is expected to be closer to 200,000 b/d.

The Carr extension project is currently estimated to cost $80-100 million. Magellan will serve as construction manager and operator of the Saddlehorn system. Subject to receipt of necessary permits and regulatory approvals, the Platteville-to-Cushing pipeline is expected to be operational during mid-2016 and the extension to Carr is anticipated to be in service by the end of 2016.
