District 2 Commissioner Clint White met with the land director in Fegruary to go over Navigator’s Borger Express Pipeline.
“This pipeline will cross the southern portion of Woodward County and will provide a regional refinery with critical access to crude oil originating from the Cushing, Oklahoma storage hub,” Clint White said. “This project will enable the refinery to access greater volumes and more varied types of crude, allowing it more flexibility to provide different refined products to Texas and Oklahoma residents and businesses.”
The Borger Express will directly and indirectly provide significant economic benefits to nearby communities and areas along the pipeline route, according to Clint White.
“The project will be divided into 4 sections, and will be built simultaneously,” Clint White said.
