During Phase 1, KLJ provided engineering and design of an upgraded crude oil terminal facility with the addition of pumping and metering buildings. Phase 2 continued with the addition of a pipeline from the existing Rose Rock terminal to the Dakota Access Pipeline facility located nearby. The pipeline crossed Highway 1804 and two other facilities before reaching the Dakota Access Pipeline facility.
KLJ performed the preliminary process verification of Rose Rock’s predefined process flow requirements. Site and civil plans were developed based upon Rose Rock’s approved facility arrangement. These plans were utilized in conjunction with other pertinent information to lead the permitting efforts for this facility retrofit design. Facility engineering and design efforts for crude transport included mechanical, electrical, structural and instrument and controls. The pipeline and bore calculations, as well as easement and alignment drawings for the pipeline were completed by KLJ.
This terminal and pipeline system permitted Rose Rock to increase sales of crude as well as expand the current facility. The successful commissioning of the facility allows Rose Rock to be the first midstream oil and gas group to provide crude to Dakota Access Pipeline, marking a major milestone for both parties.
