GreenHunter Pipeline LLC announced June 30 that it has made agreements to have exclusive use of three independent pipelines between West Virginia, Pennsylvania and the Ohio River.

The agreement between GreenHunter Pipeline and Major Pipeline LLC provides exclusive use for transportation of freshwater, oilfield wastewater and hydrocarbons, including oil, condensate and natural gas liquids, for 10 years.

The company chose receipt points in southwestern Pennsylvania and northwestern West Virginia, and delivery points along the Ohio River and at one of GreenHunter’s barge terminal locations. A spokesman for GreenHunter said the company is unable to release the specific locations at this time.

“By streamlining the logistics, we immediately remove a large number of trucks currently on the roadways that are making long hauls to Ohio and West Virginia, which are most inefficient,” John Jack, senior vice president of operations for Appalachia, said in a statement. Not only will the reduction of long-hauling result in less wear and tear of the existing roadways, but a significantly reduced carbon footprint will result along with increased safety for everyone.”

The oilfield wastewater pipeline will have the capacity to transport approximately 100,000 bbls — equivalent of about 4.2 million gallons — per day; the freshwater pipeline will be able to transport about 140,000 bbls, or 5.88 million gallons, per day; and the condensate pipeline will be capable of transporting about 30,000 bbls, or 1.26 million gallons, per day.

“By adding these multiple pipelines capable of transporting different forms of fluids, we will significantly reduce field and operating costs for these operators by using the most economical way of moving these products,” Jack said.

The first phase of the project is scheduled to be complete and operational by Jan. 1, 2016.

GreenHunter Pipeline is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GreenHunter Resources Inc., a Grapevine, Texas-based water resource, waste management, environmental services and hydrocarbon marketing company specializing in the unconventional oil and natural gas shale resource plays.

Major Pipeline is an independent natural gas midstream asset company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
