The Bakken Express Oil Pipeline was a planned $1.8-billion, 1,300-mile pipeline that would have transported crude oil from the Bakken shale play in North Dakota to Cushing, Oklahoma. The pipeline was canceled in November 2012 after project developer Oneok failed to secure sufficient long-term commitments.
