Sunoco Plans West Texas Crude Deliveries To Gulf Coast

Posted on

Sunoco Pipeline L.P. has concluded an open season for the Permian Express Phase I project to deliver 150,000 bpd of West Texas crude to Gulf Coast markets.   For Permian Express Phase I, Sunoco Logistics will reverse its Wortham-to-Wichita Falls pipeline and utilize excess capacity on the southern leg of the West Texas Gulf pipeline system to create continuous pipeline service from Wichita Falls to Nederland/Beaumont, TX markets. At Wichita Falls, a connection to Basin Pipeline will be provided. Due to the use of existing assets, an initial capacity to transport approximately 90,000 bpd to Nederland will be operational within 6 to 9 months. Full capacity of 150,000 bpd is expected by the second half of 2013.
