RIO Pipeline starts up in Delaware basin

Rangeland Energy, Sugar Land, Tex., has started commercial shipments on its RIO Pipeline in the Delaware basin and envisions expansion of the system as demand grows (OGJ Online, Apr. 14, 2016).

The 110-mile, 12-in. OD pipeline carries crude oil and condensate from Rangeland’s RIO State Line Terminal in Loving County, Tex., to its Geneva and Zurich terminals, which are connected to pipelines in Midland. Capacity is 125,000 b/d.

The Zurich Terminal remains under construction, scheduled for completion in spring 2017. The other terminals are complete.

Rangeland expects to build a 10-in. bidirectional pipeline connecting the State Line Terminal with the RIO Hub near Loving, NM. The RIO Hub provides unit train service and storage for inbound frac sand and outbound crude and condensate.
