Update: Bakken Pipeline Takeaway Capacity -- April 1, 2017

Early on, I had a lot of posts regarding "takeaway capacity" in the Bakken. I haven't looked at that in a long time. Here is a link to a Oil & Gas Finanacial Journal story from late last year that brings us up to date: Bakken Piepline Takeaway Capacity.



  1. Way back in the day, when the Keystone XL was being discussed they got into details about feeder pipes into North dakota, has anyone seen any articles that delineate what the keystone may look like now, or is it still in the will it be built at all stage?

    1. This pipeline is still in the "will it be built at all" stage. If I recall correctly, a US senator from Montana (since retired) was able to persuade builder to include Bakken feeder lines if the state of Montana was going to approve the pipeline going through its state. I assume state approvals remain in force; they were waiting for federal approval. Also, I think I read the other day that Nebraska has not approved the revised route and their legislature won't get to it until September this year (2017).
