Buckeye Partners announced it has scheduled hydrotesting and is planning to file new FERC tariffs in advance of planned bi-directional service along the Altoona-to-Pittsburgh section of the refined fuels pipeline system operated by its subsidiary, Laurel Pipe Line Company. 

In cooperation with its shippers, Buckeye is moving forward with planned bi-directional service while FERC continues to review a petition for a declaratory order filed in April 2018. 

Buckeye scheduled the hydrotesting as a standard procedure to ensure safety on the Laurel system and a critical step toward initiating bi-directional service. Buckeye continues to expect bi-directional service to commence by mid-2019.
