Update on the Liberty Pipeline Project Adapted from Information by Phillips 66 Partners LP and Liberty Pipeline Phillips 66 Partners LP has agreed to acquire 50% interest of the Liberty Pipeline project for approximately $75 mil- lion. The Liberty Pipeline will be a new, approximately 700-mile-long pipeline, up to 24 inches in diameter, transporting light crude oil from Guernsey, Wyoming, to Cushing, Oklahoma. The pipeline is expected to be put in service during the first half of 2021. The planned route was carefully cho- sen to meet specific standards created to minimize the impact on the environment, wildlife, and cultural resources. The com- pany also plans to avoid sensitive areas and use existing pipeline routes. In fact, roughly 85% of the current route will follow existing corridors. America’s recent advances in technology have led to the country becoming the largest oil and natural gas producer in the world. The Rockies and Bakken produc- tion areas are a major part of this movement. With production growth, comes an increased demand for new infrastructure to connect the area to consumer markets, and pipelines are a great way to meet the demand. The project will also include the construction of storage facilities near Guernsey, Wyoming; Platteville, Colorado; and Cushing, Oklahoma. During con- struction, the Liberty Pipeline is expected to create up to 2500 construction jobs, as well as 40 full-time jobs. These new pipelines will ensure gas and oil can get from the production fields to refineries, manufacturers, and consumers. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, pipelines are the safest and most efficient means of transporting crude oil. Projects like the Liberty Pipeline are important for maintaining jobs and securing the country’s energy independence. 41 WorldWide Drilling Resource ® AUGUST 2020 New & Used Tricones PDCs Drag & Claw Bits Drill Collars Bit Tipping Subs & Stabilizers HDD Bits & Reamers DTH Hammer & Bits Custom Fabrication Junk Mills / Fishing Tools Rod Henderson 661-201-6259 Eran Henderson 661-330-0790 Continuing Education is Important Compiled by Editorial Staff, WorldWide Drilling Resource ® Everyone knows, if you want your company to be successful, it’s important for employees to know the trade. In addition, learning never stops - there’s always more to know to broaden your knowledge and make your work the best it can be. The more you learn, the more efficient you are, and efficiency means money saved. Knowing how to use your equipment to its fullest advantage makes the most of your in- vestment. Improving the safety of your jobsite is vital for your employees and business. Proper training shows the best ways to use your equipment, how to operate it safely, and what needs to be done to maintain it - so you’ll create a safer environment for your workers and customers. Operators who know how to maximize productivity and avoid preventable issues - and realize the importance of daily in- spection and safety - are at a premium. Employees who are training and educating themselves regulary will allow the company to purchase better, more advanced equipment for their jobs. Education also helps increase your qualifications. Not to mention, many people want to know their contractors are current on eco-friendly tech trends, and aren’t harming the environment more than necessary. Without continuously learning and embracing technology, you may miss important things to keep you at the top of your game. Change is inevitable. Without continuing education to learn about the newest innovations available, how can you offer what customers are looking for? WWDR photo.
