HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: AMID) (“Partnership” or “AMID”) today announced it has entered a connection agreement with Dakota Access Pipeline (“DAPL”), the 1,172-mile 30-inch pipeline that extends from the Partnership’s Bakken formation production area in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois.
The new DAPL interconnect will tie into the Partnership’s Bakken crude oil gathering system which consists of interstate pipelines with capacity to transport up to approximately 40,000 barrels per day of crude oil. In addition, the Partnership’s Bakken crude oil gathering system has crude oil trucking capabilities located near Watford City, ND that provides greater producer access to market alternatives and off-take capabilities. AMID recently added hydrogen sulfide treating to its Bakken system allowing customers to meet pipeline specifications for crude oil delivery thereby expanding customer service offerings and the competitive footprint of the system. Leveraging off the recent additions to the Partnership’s system and the new connection to DAPL, AMID will be able to deliver an incremental 20,000 barrels per day to market.
“This new interconnect with DAPL is a continuation of our strategy to optimize the long-term value of our assets by providing producers a suite of services that include gathering and processing with strong market connectivity via multiple pipeline takeaway points,” said Lynn L. Bourdon, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Through the expansion of our services and our ability to increase the value of our gathering infrastructure, the Partnership has been able to capitalize on a strategic asset that increases optionality and additional takeaway points for our customers.”
