Medallion considers fourth major crude oil pipeline expansion

April 2016

Medallion Pipeline Co. LLC announced a binding open season which solicits long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on the fourth major expansion of Medallion’s existing crude oil pipeline system. The current project proposed by the open season will further extend and expand the geographic scope of the 370-mile Medallion system :

The Crane Extension is a proposed 100,000 bpd bi-directional crude oil pipeline which will extend approximately 25 miles in a southwesterly direction from Medallion’s existing Midkiff Station in northwest Upton County, TX to an interconnection with Magellan Midstream Partners’ Longhorn Pipeline in east Crane County, TX.

An integral part of the overall project is a proposed 25,000 bpd expansion of Medallion’s existing Midkiff Lateral which extends in a northwesterly direction from the Midkiff Station to the Garden City Station in Glasscock County, TX. As part of the Midkiff expansion, the existing Midkiff Lateral will be reconfigured for bi-directional operations.

The Expansion Project is expected to commence full commercial operations in the second quarter of 2016, although certain segments of the Expansion Project may commence service on an interim basis on an earlier date.
