Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), Magellan Midstream Partners and Delek US Holdings received sufficient commitments to proceed with plans to construct a 30-inch common carrier pipeline to transport crude oil from the Permian Basin to the Texas Gulf Coast region.
The 600-mile pipeline system is expected to be operational in mid-2020 with multiple Texas origins, including Wink, Crane and Midland. The pipeline system will transport crude oil to both Energy Transfer’s Nederland, TX, terminal and Magellan’s East Houston terminal for delivery through their respective distribution systems.
The project is designed to increase the pipe diameter in order to expand based on additional commitments received during the upcoming open season. An open season for additional shipper volume commitments on the pipeline is currently underway.
