Tall Oak Midstream III holding open season for ARC Pipeline project

Tall Oak Midstream III LLC, Oklahoma City, has launched a nonbinding open season to secure prospective shippers for a proposed natural gas residue pipeline in Southeast Oklahoma. The 80-mile Arkoma Residue Capacity (ARC) Pipeline will connect to Tall Oak’s planned Panther Creek Natural Gas Processing Plant in Hughes County, Okla., and a planned receipt point off the Enable Gas Transmission line. The ARC Pipeline will transport residue gas from the two points to interconnects to the south near Bennington, Okla.

The Panther Creek Plant, a 200 MMcfd cryogenic natural gas processing plant, is expected to come into service by first-quarter 2019. Planned interconnects from the plant include Enable Oklahoma Intrastate Transmission, Enable Gas Transmission, and the Arkoma Connector Pipeline. Proposed interconnects to the south near Bennington include the Midcontinent Express Pipeline, Gulf Crossing Pipeline Company, and Natural Gas Pipeline Company of America.

Construction of the ARC Pipeline is projected to begin in second-quarter 2019, pending regulatory approval, with an in-service target by yearend 2019.
