Medallion Pipeline Co. LLC, a subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, is holding a binding open season to solicit long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on the fourth major expansion of its existing 370-mile crude oil pipeline system.
The Crane Extension is a proposed 100,000 b/d bidirectional crude oil pipeline reaching about 25 miles in a southwesterly direction from Medallion’s existing Midkiff Station in northwest Upton County, Tex., to an interconnection with Magellan Midstream Partners’ Longhorn Pipeline in east Crane County, Tex. Both counties are in the Permian basin south of Midland-Odessa, Tex.
An integral part of the extension is a proposed 25,000 b/d expansion of Medallion’s existing Midkiff Lateral, extending in a northwesterly direction from Midkiff Station to the Garden City Station in Glasscock County, Tex. As part of the Midkiff expansion, the existing Midkiff Lateral will be reconfigured for bidirectional operations.
Medallion expects all components of the Crane Extension to begin full commercial operations in this year’s second quarter, although certain segments may start service on an earlier interim basis.
The open season will end Mar. 16.
