The project was proposed by Parnon Gathering in 2011 to lay approximately 115 miles of new 8-inch pipeline from Cherokee, Oklahoma to Cushing, Oklahoma with capacity 20,000 barrels per day, with the ability to raise the rate to 35,000 barrels per day.

In 2016 the pipeline was bought by MVP Holdings, LLC.[4]
