Magellan Midstream Partners has launched a supplemental open season on the western leg of its refined petroleum products pipeline system in Texas. It is in the process of expanding the capacity of the pipeline system to approximately 175,000 bpd from its current capacity of 100,000 bpd. In addition, the partnership is currently building a new refined products terminal in Midland, Texas.
Subject to the results of the supplemental open season, Magellan is considering the addition of another 25,000 bpd of capacity on the west Texas pipeline, for a total capacity up to 200,000 bpd, which could be operational by the end of 2021.
Based on the timing of current construction activities, Magellan expects both the west Texas refined products pipeline expansion and new Midland terminal to be operational in mid-2020.
Magellan’s west Texas pipeline system primarily transports gasoline and diesel fuel to demand centres in Abilene, Midland/Odessa and El Paso, Texas as well as New Mexico. The pipeline system also can access markets in Arizona and Mexico via connections to third-party pipelines.
Binding commitments are due from interested customers by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on Dec. 20, 2019.
