Firms assess development of S. Texas refined products line

Magellan Midstream Partners LP and TransMontaigne Partners LP are jointly assessing the development of a new refined products pipeline in South Texas.

The potential project would include construction of a 150-mile, 16-in. OD pipeline capable of transporting 150,000 b/d of gasoline, diesel fuel, propane, and condensate from Magellan’s Corpus Christi, Tex., terminal to TransMontaigne’s Brownsville, Tex., terminal.

The line would supply the Brownsville or other South Texas markets, or serve as means to transport products to Mexico by truck, rail, or connections to pipelines owned by TransMontaigne and third parties.

If warranted by additional demand, the pipeline capacity could be expanded to 250,000 b/d, the firms say.

Subject to receipt of necessary permits, regulatory approvals and sufficient customer demand, the potential pipeline could be operational by yearend 2018.
