Tall Oak Midstream II, LLC and its affiliates and subsidiaries (Tall Oak) announced that it commenced a non-binding open season for its TOM Midcon Transport residue gas pipeline project. The open season will begin at 9 a.m. CST on 6 April 2017, and will conclude at 3 p.m. CST on 20 April 2017.
The non-binding open season solicits commitments for firm transportation capacity from Tall Oak’s Carmen plant in Alfalfa County (Oklahoma, USA), to deliveries at the Canadian-Blackwell CDP on Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline, Inc. The Carmen plant is currently connected to Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line Company and ONEOK Gas Transportation, LLC for residue gas deliveries. Tall Oak’s customers have requested additional residue gas takeaway capacity and market flexibility through a proposed interconnect with Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline Inc.
The preliminary scope of the project consists of approximately 8 miles of 12 in. or 16 in. pipeline to the point of interconnect. Following the open season, Tall Oak will refine the preliminary scope of the project with a project design that is capable of accommodating the level of shipper nominations received in this open season. Shippers that submit shipper nomination forms through this open season are expected to execute binding precedent agreements following the completion of the refined project design, which is expected before 30 April 2017.
“Tall Oak’s track record of responsiveness with economic solutions that meet the most rigorous safety standards is already well established,” said Tall Oak President and CEO, Ryan Lewellyn. “This project follows that record and addresses the increasing demand among shippers for market flexibility in the mid continent.”
