Hess Midstream Partners has a 20 percent controlling economic interest in a system of gathering pipelines that extend nearly 1,600 miles to support production growth in the core of the Bakken. These pipelines move crude oil and natural gas from remote Hess wells to processing and storage facilities. The system has the capacity to add additional customers and can be expanded to tie-in additional wells.
Natural Gas Gathering Pipelines & Compression
Natural Gas Gathering and Compression
A natural gas gathering and compression system located primarily in McKenzie, Williams and Mountrail Counties connects Hess and third-party owned or operated wells to the Tioga Gas Plant and third-party pipeline facilities. This gathering system consists of approximately 1,211 miles of high- and low-pressure natural gas and Natural Gas Liquid (NGL) gathering pipelines with a current capacity of up to 345,000 Mcf per day, including an aggregate compression capacity of 174,000 Mcf per day.
Hawkeye Gas Facility
The system includes the Hawkeye Gas Facility, which has the capability to compress 50,000 Mcf per day of natural gas, extract imbedded NGLs and remove water vapor. The compressed gas and mixed NGLs are transported to the Tioga Gas Plant either as separate or combined streams for processing.
Crude Oil Gathering Pipelines and Pumping
Crude Oil Gathering
A crude oil gathering system, located primarily in McKenzie, Williams and Mountrail Counties connects Hess and third-party owned or operated wells to the Ramberg Terminal Facility, the Tioga Rail Terminal and, once completed, the Johnson’s Corner Header System. The system features approximately 365 miles of crude oil gathering pipelines with a capacity of up to 161,000 barrels per day.
Hawkeye Oil Facility
Included in the system is the Hawkeye Oil Facility which is expected to be completed in early 2017 and operational in 2018. A crude oil pumping and truck unloading facility, it will receive crude oil through pipeline and truck deliveries from Hess and third parties and transport it by pipeline to the Ramberg Terminal Facility. Total receipt capacity of the facility will be 76,000 barrels per day, which can be filled solely through our crude oil gathering system or through a combination of our crude oil gathering system and truck unloading bays.
The facility will have truck unloading bays with an aggregate capacity of 30,000 barrels per day, and a redelivery capability of 76,000 barrels per day through a pipeline connected to the Ramberg Terminal Facility.
There will also be storage tanks with a combined working storage capacity of 10,000 barrels of crude oil.
