This 'Pony' Knows More Than One Trick - More Than a Bullet Line from Rockies to Cushing

Tallgrass Energy Partners’ Pony Express Pipeline provides capacity to move 230 Mb/d of Bakken crude oil received at Guernsey, WY all the way to the mega-hub at Cushing, OK, making it one of the most important pipeline corridors out of the Williston Basin. Possibly because of its moniker ‘Express’, it is often thought of as a bullet line, hauling barrels 760 miles in a straight shot across Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas and into Oklahoma. But there is much more to Pony, including a major outlet for Niobrara crude (the 90 Mb/d Northeast Colorado Lateral) and an expanding capability to deliver oil to refineries and other facilities on the way to Cushing. In Part 2 of our blog series covering pipelines out of the Bakken/Rockies region, we examine what the changes in crude production and flow patterns have meant to Pony Express and how this pipeline can be expected to respond to changes in regional crude oil supply and demand.
