BridgeTex Pipeline System Eyes Expansion

February 2016

Magellan Midstream Partners LP and Plains All American Pipeline LP announced that BridgeTex Pipeline Co. LLC, owned 50/50 by Magellan and Plains, has launched an open season to assess customer interest in a new origin in Grimes County, TX for the BridgeTex pipeline to accept Eaglebine crude oil and condensate shipments. The proposed new origin, to be located 100 miles northwest of Houston, is expected to be operational in mid-2017.

The BridgeTex pipeline currently has a capacity of 300,000 bpd to deliver Permian Basin crude oil from Colorado City, TX to the Houston Gulf Coast area. If warranted by customer demand, BridgeTex will expand the capacity of the pipeline system by approximately 35,000 bpd to provide transportation services from the new Grimes County origin to the Houston Gulf Coast area.
