Medallion Pipeline Co. LLC announced a binding open season which solicits long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on the third 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 existing 320-mile system :
The Howard Lateral is a proposed 45,000 bpd bi-directional crude oil pipeline which will extend from multiple origin points in Howard County, TX approximately 49 miles to the southeast to a new point of interconnection on Medallion’s Wolfcamp Connector mainline system in Glasscock County, TX. An integral part of the overall project is a proposed 30,000 bpd expansion of Medallion’s existing Wolfcamp Connector mainline system which originates at the Garden City Station in Glasscock County and extends approximately 60 miles north to the Colorado City hub in Scurry County, TX.
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.
