Uinta Basin Pipeline

  • Utah’s petroleum production is almost exclusively focused on the Uinta Basin which cannot exceed the approximately 90,000 bpd capacity of the Salt Lake City refiners without experiencing dramatic discounts that have exceeded $20 per barrel in 2014.  Proposed pipeline will allow Uinta Basin crude access to markets outside of Salt Lake City Refining complex
  • Decrease Differentials by construction of a 72 mile pipeline to Rail Terminal located in Price UT.
  • Upgrader or small refinery in the basis is uneconomic
  • Reduce the current 250 trucks a day, lower road maintenance and improved safety.
  • U.S. refiners are among the world’s lowest cost refiners; the U.S. refiners can now export refined products
  • Millions invested in engineering studies have concluded that a heat traced pipeline is economic and a tremendous benefit to all stake holders in the Uinta Basin.
  • Sage Energy has the ability to respond to concerns the Tribe and work with producers and state and local agencies.
