BridgeTex Pipeline to expand capacity from Permian Basin to Houston Gulf Coast

BridgeTex Pipeline Company LLC, owned 50/50 by Magellan Midstream Partners LP (NYSE: MMP) and Plains All American Pipeline LP (NYSE: PAA), is expanding BridgeTex pipeline's current capacity from the Permian Basin of 300,000 barrels per day to a new capacity of approximately 400,000 bpd. The expanded capacity is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 following enhancements to existing pumps and related equipment.

The 20-inch BridgeTex pipeline system currently transports Permian Basin crude oil from Colorado City, Texas to the Houston Gulf Coast area. Beginning early in the second quarter of this year, a newly-constructed origin point at Bryan, Texas, which is located 100 miles northwest of Houston, also will begin operations to accept shipments from the Eaglebine region for delivery to Houston.
