The pipeline originates at Rangeland’s State Line Terminal in Loving County, TX, where Rangeland has constructed truck unloading and crude storage facilities. Unloading facilities and tanks also have been constructed at the destination terminal in Midland, where additional space is available to build customer-leased crude storage. A long-term connection agreement has been executed with Plains Pipeline LP for delivery to the Plains Midland South terminal, giving shippers access to multiple terminals at Midland as well as outbound pipelines.
The open season process provides shippers with the opportunity to make volume commitments and execute long-term transportation contracts with Rangeland. Shippers electing to make long-term volume commitments to the RIO Pipeline will be eligible to receive priority transportation service at a premium rate.
