Sunoco Logistics announced a successful open season for Sunoco Pipeline L.P. and Inland Corporation’s Allegheny Access pipeline project, which will transport refined products from the Midwest to eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania markets. Enough binding commitments from shippers have been received to enable the project to move forward.
Allegheny Access is expected to have an initial capacity to deliver 85,000 bpd with the ability to scale up to 110,000 bpd. The project will use a combination of new and existing assets in Ohio and Pennsylvania and over the course of construction up to 600 people could be employed. The Allegheny Access pipeline is expected to be operational in the first half of 2014.
