Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) announces plans to build a pipeline to transport oil from the Bakken shale in North Dakota to multiple refineries in the Midwest and Gulf Coast regions.

ETP says it will launch an open season next week to assess market interest in the project, but did not reveal the pipeline's capacity and provided few details.

ETP already is developing the Trunkline conversion project designed to take up to 420K bbl/day Bakken and Canadian crude from Illinois to Louisiana.
