Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE:PAA) recently increased the available throughput capacity of the 80-mile Mesa Pipeline System by approximately 100,000 barrels per day to approximately 420,000 barrels per day.
The Mesa System, which originates near Midland, Texas, delivers crude oil to Alon’s Big Spring Texas refinery and feeds both the West Texas Gulf Pipeline, which serves markets south and east of Cushing, and the Basin Pipeline system, which delivers crude oil to the Cushing hub. The system is jointly owned by subsidiaries of Plains All American and Sunoco Logistics

"This was a very low-cost project that provides our shippers with market alternatives and supports the recently announced expansions of both the West Texas Gulf and Basin pipeline systems,” said Harry N. Pefanis President and COO of Plains All American. 

PAA owns and operates a network of approximately 16,000 miles of liquids pipelines, approximately 90 million barrels of liquids storage capacity and handles over 3 million barrels of physical product on a daily basis.
