White Cliffs Pipeline, L.L.C. (WCPL), owned by subsidiaries of Rose Rock Midstream, L.P., Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., Western Gas Partners, LP and Noble Energy, Inc., plans to begin the commissioning of the expansion of the White Cliffs Pipeline in July 2014. WCPL expects the Expansion Project, a looping of the existing crude oil pipeline from Platteville, Colorado, to Cushing, Oklahoma, to be fully operational in August 2014.
The Expansion Project allows WCPL to help meet the growing demand for midstream services by offering long-haul transportation from the Denver Julesburg Basin. Once the Expansion Project is fully operational, the capacity of the White Cliffs Pipeline will increase from 76,000 barrels per day to approximately 150,000 barrels per day. Following completion of the Expansion Project, Rose Rock Midstream, L.P. will continue operating the White Cliffs Pipeline.
