The 30-inch diameter Bakken-to-Cushing Oil Pipeline was a proposed crude oil pipeline that would have run 1,200 miles from the Williston Basin in North Dakota to Cushing, Oklahoma.[2] The pipeline would have also served the Power River and Denver-Julesburg Basins and transported up to six grades of crude oil and products, such as Rockies Condensate and Processed Condensate.[3] Its initial capacity would have been 340,000 barrels per day, expandable to 700,000 barrels per day.[2] The pipeline was originally planned to be completed by the end of 2016.[4]

Enterprise Products Partners announced the pipeline in June 2014.[4] Enterprise opened the binding open commitment period to determine shipper demand for capacity on 4 September 2014.[3] In October 2014, Enterprise extended the deadline for binding open commitments to 14 November 2014.[5] The project was subsequently canceled in December 2014.[1]
