Paradigm’s Bakken efforts are focused on creating integrated crude gathering, storage, transportation and rail solutions that provide producers with economic outbound optionality and premium multi-market access.
With more than 45 miles of pipeline in the ground and another 100 miles under construction, Paradigm will be able to aggregate 280,000 BOD combined into our Paradigm Keene Central Delivery Point ("Keene CDP"). Serving as the hub of our system, the Keene CDP will offer producers storage options, refiner markets, and multiple outbound connection options.
Through our Bakken crude storage & transportation infrastructure, and strategic joint venture projects with Phíllips 66 Partners and Grey Wolf Midstream, Paradigm is able to efficiently and economically move producer's crude all the way from the wellhead to markets across the country.
