Two new pipelines proposed for central U.S.

While the Keystone XL oil pipeline continues to languish amidst an ongoing political struggle, two new major pipelines have been proposed in the surrounding region.

Reuters reports that Enterprise Products Partners, along with Anadarko Petroleum Corp and DCP Midstream LLC, recently announced plans to build a pipeline for natural gas liquids stretching from the Denver-Julesburg Basin in Colorado to Skellytown, in the Texas panhandle.

This oil pipeline, expected to be completed by the end of next year, would initially boast a capacity of 150,000 barrels per day, though that could later be expanded to as much as 230,000 barrels per day.

Earlier in the week, Oklahoma-based natural gas company Oneok Partners LP proposed plans for an oil pipeline running from the Bakken shale formation in North Dakota to the plain states' energy hub, Cushing, Oklahoma.

The Bakken Crude Express Pipeline, Oneok's first foray into oil, would be able to handle as much as 200,000 barrels per day and would combine with five other proposals to offer the region the ability to ship 900,000 barrels per day.
