SemGroup Corporation and DCP Midstream have announced the commencement of an open season for the development of a new pipeline system to transport segregated, light batches of crude oil originating in Cushing, Okla. and terminating in Houston, Texas. 

The proposed Gladiator Pipeline would originate at SemGroup’s Cushing terminal and provide crude oil service to Gulf Coast markets. The Cushing origin would provide potential shippers the connectivity to source barrels from key pipelines that converge in Cushing, including the White Cliffs Pipeline, which serves Colorado’s DJ Basin. 

At the pipeline’s destination, potential shippers would have many options for connecting barrels to a variety of demand centres, including refineries in the Houston area or to crude oil storage and export facilities, such as SemGroup’s HFOTCO Terminal. If sufficient commitments are obtained, subject to the receipt of all of the necessary approvals, permits and force majeure, the proposed Gladiator Pipeline may be operational by the third quarter of 2020, following the potential construction of new NGL capacity by DCP.  

All potential shippers must submit binding commitments by 5pm Central Time on January 31, 2019.
