SemCrude LP, a subsidiary of SemGroup Corporation, announced plans to expand its Platteville CO truck unloading terminal as part of an agreement with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation. Expansion of the Platteville unloading terminal will increase capacity by up to 60%, and is designed to support Anadarko’s anticipated increase in production in the region.
The Platteville Terminal, located northeast of Denver, is the origination point of the White Cliffs Pipeline, a 526-mile crude oil pipeline terminating in Cushing OK. Crude oil from the Denver-Julesberg basin is currently delivered to SemCrude’s Platteville Terminal via transport trucks and unloaded through 10 existing truck bays. The expansion is expected to be complete by the end of 2012.
“Significant, increased demand continues for transporting crude through the White Cliffs Pipeline,” said Pete Schwiering, president of SemCrude. “We are excited about this expansion and working with Anadarko to meet its rising production needs.”
