Blueknight Energy Partners, L.P. ("BKEP" or the "Partnership"), a midstream energy company focused on providing integrated services for companies engaged in the production, distribution and marketing of crude oil, asphalt and other petroleum products, announced the operational startup of the southern Oklahoma Arbuckle pipeline.
The Arbuckle pipeline is a 65-mile pipeline from southern Oklahoma to Wynnewood, Oklahoma where it intersects BKEP's existing Oklahoma mainline system. The pipeline was constructed as part of a long-term transportation agreement with XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. The pipeline transports committed XTO crude oil production from the Woodford Shale area in Southern Oklahoma to BKEP's crude oil terminal in Cushing, Oklahoma.
"We are delighted to put the Arbuckle system into service for XTO Energy. The Arbuckle pipeline represents the first significant expansion to our Oklahoma mainline system and we expect it to positively complement our crude storage and transportation services already offered to customers in the area. The system provides a more cost effective and reliable transportation option out of the Woodford Shale," said Mark Hurley, BKEP Chief Executive Officer.
