Silver Creek Midstream is one of the largest pipeline operators for the gathering and transportation of crude oil in the state of Wyoming. Today, we operate over 945-miles of crude oil gathering and transportation pipelines across 11 counties. In addition to Silver Creek’s expansive pipeline systems, the Company also operates multiple truck injection stations, a unit and manifest capable rail facility in Converse County, and over 2.6+ million barrels of crude storage.
Silver Creek Midstream’s Powder River Basin Pipeline System offers a comprehensive crude midstream solution across Converse, Campbell, Johnson, and Natrona counties. The Pipeline System currently includes 450+ miles of crude trunkline and gathering pipelines, 1.8+ million barrels of crude storage providing batch capability through the system for up to three different specifications of crude oil, and a unit and manifest train capable rail facility in and out of the Silver Creek Pronghorn Terminal.
In the first quarter of 2020, Silver Creek Midstream placed into service ~60 miles of 16” pipeline from Campbell Station to Pronghorn Station running parallel to its existing 10” trunkline. As a result of the System expansions, Silver Creek Midstream currently has 120+ thousand barrels per day of pipeline capacity into Pronghorn Station, expandable to 350+ thousand barrels per day with the use of drag reducing agents and additional horse power.
Additionally, Silver Creek Midstream partnered with Tallgrass Energy to form the Powder River Gateway Joint Venture, which owns and operates both the Iron Horse and Powder River Express pipelines and the Guernsey Hub consisting of 1.1+ million barrels of crude storage. The pipelines provide a current capacity of 175+ thousand barrels per day of pipeline capacity from Silver Creek’s Pronghorn Terminal to Guernsey, expandable to 350+ thousand barrels per day of pipeline capacity with the use of drag reducing agents and additional horsepower, and the Guernsey hub provides four existing downstream connections to pipelines providing access to the Casper, Patoka, Cushing and Gulf Coast markets. The Joint Venture’s existing infrastructure in Guernsey is currently designed to accommodate new downstream connections as additional third-party pipelines are placed into service.
Red Butte is a 495-mile crude oil pipeline system with an expansive footprint across the Big Horn and Wind River Basins. Red Butte is currently the largest pipeline gathering asset transporting crude oil out of the Big Horn and Wind River Basins to Casper, Wyoming. The system has two delivery points, multiple truck loading stations, and over 800,000 barrels of storage along the system.
Silver Creek Midstream is currently expanding its existing Powder River Pipeline System across the core of the Powder River Basin to meet the growing demand and midstream needs of the Basin. Contact Silver Creek to learn more about the company’s current and planned expansion projects.
