2009 Bakken Midstream Infrastructure Wall Map
Development of the Bakken oil and gas shale play in northwestern North Dakota, northeastern Montana, and southeastern Saskatchewan, Canada is spurring development of several new pipeline systems, as operators are working to insure that transportation infrastructure to meet the region's future oil and gas transportation needs.
These projects include expansion of existing facilities and as well as plans for brand new oil and gas gathering systems, gas transmission systems and crude oil trunk lines. To keep the gas flowing, new compressor stations will be built and horsepower will be added at existing stations.
In addition, new gas processing facilities are being planned and existing plants are being expanded to monetize the growing amount of marketable natural gas liquids (NGLs) being produced in association with the Bakken crude oil and natural gas.
The Laminated Bakken Midstream Infrastructure Wall Map captures these developments visually with detailed representations of the region's pipelines and more. No other map comes close to the amount of data and information on existing and proposed systems in the Bakken. Map features include:
--Natural Gas Pipelines (labeled with name)
--Crude Oil Pipelines (labeled with name)
--Refined Product Pipelines (labeled with name)
--NGL, LPG, HVL Pipelines (labeled with name)
--Major Receipt points (with average gas flows for 2009)
--Gas Processing Plants (Labeled by name)
--Crude Oil Refineries (Labeled with their Capacity in KBPD)
--Gas Compressor Stations
--Crude Oil Terminals
--Large Oil and Gas Fields
