BridgeTex Pipeline adding 100,000 b/d of Permian crude capacity

BridgeTex Pipeline Co. LLC, owned 50-50 by Magellan Midstream Partners LP and Plains All American Pipeline LP (PAA), is expanding the BridgeTex crude oil pipeline’s capacity from the Permian basin to 400,000 b/d from 300,000 b/d. The expanded capacity is expected to be available second-quarter 2017 following enhancements to existing pumps and related equipment.

The 20-in. OD BridgeTex pipeline system transports Permian basin crude from Colorado City, Tex., to the Houston gulf coast area. A newly built origin point at Bryan, Tex., 100 miles northwest of Houston, will also begin operations second-quarter 2017, shipping Eaglebine-sourced crude to Houston.

Magellan is also building a high-capacity marine terminal along the Houston Ship Channel in Pasadena, Tex., to handle refined products. Initial planned capacity is 1 million bbl of products and ethanol storage. Subject to regulatory approvals, Magellan expects the Pasadena terminal to be operational early 2019 (OGJ Online, July 18, 2016).
