Midship Pipeline Company, LLC
Midship Pipeline Company, LLC (“Midship”) is constructing a natural gas pipeline project to create new firm transportation capacity of up to 1,440,000 Dth/d connecting new gas production from the emerging STACK and SCOOP plays in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma to growing Gulf Coast and Southeast markets via deliveries to existing pipelines (“Midship Project”).
The Midship Project will include new-build mainline pipeline and three compressor stations, two lateral pipelines with a booster station, and associated facilities. Midship obtained all required regulatory approvals and were issued full notice to proceed in early 2019. Construction has begun, and it is anticipated Midship will go into service in late 2019.
The Midship Pipeline will consist of nearly 200 miles of 36-inch diameter new-build pipeline that will begin in Kingfisher County, Oklahoma and terminate at interconnects with existing interstate natural gas pipeline near Bennington, Oklahoma. Midship is rated for a MAOP of up to 1,480 psig.
The new-build facilities will include a total of three mainline compressor stations, seven receipt meter stations/taps and four delivery meters. In addition, the following two laterals will also be constructed:
- Chisholm Lateral – approximately 20 miles of 30-inch-diameter new-build pipeline that will begin at the Chisholm Processing Plant in Kingfisher County and end on the mainline of the Midship project near Okarche.
- Velma Lateral – approximately 13 miles of 16-inch-diamater new-build pipeline that will begin at the Velma Processing Plant in Stephens County and ending in Garvin County. A booster station will be located along the Velma Lateral in Stephens County, Oklahoma.
- One receipt tap will be constructed on the Chisholm Lateral and a receipt meter station and 2 receipt taps will be constructed on the Velma laterals. Both laterals will be rated for an MAOP of 1,480 psig.
