Blueknight starts oil pipeline
Blueknight Energy Partners LP on Monday announced the startup of a crude oil pipeline in southern Oklahoma. The 65-mile Oklahoma Arbuckle pipeline, which connects with Blueknight's mainline system at Wynnewood, was built as part of a long-term transportation agreement with Exxon Mobil Corp. subsidiary XTO Energy Inc. “We are delighted to put the Arbuckle system into service for XTO Energy,” CEO Mark Hurley said. “The Arbuckle pipeline represents the first significant expansion to our Oklahoma mainline system and we expect it to positively complement our crude storage and transportation services already offered to customers in the area.”
