NST Express intends to conduct an Open Season for the NST Express Pipeline, a new FERC regulated, crude oil transportation pipeline being constructed in McKenzie County, North Dakota. The Pipeline will have the capacity to accept and deliver 40,000 bpd of crude oil from various potential interconnects as well as trucked barrels at Alexander.
By bidding for capacity on the Pipeline, producers and marketers can reserve the right to deliver crude oil through the System to NorthStar Midstream’s crude-by rail-facility in East Fairview, North Dakota and to the east and west coast markets served by the BNSF railroad. The NST Express Pipeline system connects to its Alexander facility with up to 150,000 Bbl of storage with East Fairview Facility with 515,000 Bbl of storage.
NST Express will conduct an Open Season to obtain long-term volume commitments for this new crude oil transportation system. The Open Season will provide an opportunity for interested shippers to present bids for long-term transportation commitments for capacity rights at competitive rates. The Pipeline is projected to be in service in November 2016.
