Kinder Morgan Begins Biodiesel Shipments On Oregon Pipeline

Posted on

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners has started commercial transportation of blended
  2% biodiesel (B2) through its 115-mile Oregon Pipeline that runs from Portland to Eugene.
  The first commercial batch of approximately 100,000 bbls of B2 was created using a newly installed blending system to inject B99 into ultra low sulfur diesel at the company’s Willbridge terminal in Portland. Other area terminals are expected to be able to deliver B2 to the Kinder Morgan pipeline. Kinder Morgan’s Oregon line is one of only a few pipelines in the United States able to regularly transport blended biodiesel, as this pipeline does not transport jet fuel, thereby eliminating the potential for “trailback” of product into subsequent jet fuel batches.
