Magellan Midstream Partners plans to construct a new origin at Barnhart, TX to accept crude oil shipments on the  Longhorn pipeline. The new origin, which will be located 75 miles east of the pipeline’s Crane  origin, is expected to begin receiving crude oil in early 2015 and cost $25 million.
  Magellan plans to expand the capacity of the Longhorn pipeline by 50,000 bpd to an increased capacity of 275,000 bpd, all fully committed by long-term customer agreements. Operating capacity of the pipeline is expected to reach 275,000 bpd by mid-2014 with the expansion estimated to cost $55 million.
