DALLASNavigator Borger Express LLC, an affiliated company of Navigator Energy Services announced Oct. 5 the launch of a binding open season on its Borger Express pipeline system (Borger Express), to provide shippers the opportunity to secure crude oil transportation services from Cushing, Okla., to Borger, Texas.

Prior to participating in the open season, interested parties must execute a confidentiality agreement to govern the receipt of the open season documentation. All potential shippers must submit binding commitments for service on the Borger Express pipeline by 12 p.m. Central Standard Time on Nov. 5, 2020.

The Borger Express pipeline will provide the new services by utilizing approximately 180 miles of an existing crude oil pipeline, and constructing nearly 200 miles of new, 16-inch diameter pipeline from Cleo Springs, Okla., to Borger. The project will provide shippers with critical transportation services for numerous grades of light and heavy crude oil from the Cushing storage hub to third-party storage and a regional refinery in Borger. Subject to receipt of sufficient shipper commitments and all necessary permits and approvals, Borger Express is expected to be placed in service first-quarter 2022.

Subject to the specific terms of the open season, incentive rates, priority access and certain other service incentives will be available to shippers making long-term commitments. The notice of open season is available on Borger Express’s website at www.borgerexpress.com.
