NGL announces Grand Mesa pipeline upsize

NGL Energy Partners LP has announced its decision to increase the size of its 100% owned Grand Mesa Pipeline to a higher capacity 20 in. design. The decision to expand was based on initial shipper commitments and additional volumes committed to Rimrock Midstream, LLC’s 150 mile DJ Basin gathering system that is currently under development which will tie into Grand Mesa Pipeline at Lucerne, Colorado.

The larger pipeline provides area producers a reliable and cost-effective takeaway option out of the basin capable of transporting over 200 000 bpd.

The Grand Mesa Pipeline system will include over 550 miles of new crude oil transportation pipeline, multiple truck injection bays, over 1 million bbls of operational storage, and at least two origination points located near Lucerne and Kersey (Riverside Station) in Weld County, Colorado. The system is in active development and is scheduled to commence service in Q4 2016. Rimrock will construct and operate the pipeline system.
