Crude line expansion planned in Minnesota

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Jan. 4 -- Minnesota Pipe Line Co. has applied to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission for a $300 million pipeline expansion project to increase deliveries of Canadian crude oil to Minnesota refineries.

The existing pipeline system, operated by Koch Pipeline Co., is operating at capacity. Minnesota Pipe Line proposes to start construction on the expansion in 2007 and put it in operation in early 2008.

The proposed 24-in. pipeline would use the system's existing rights-of-way with the northern portion following the existing system's route from Clearbrook, Minn., south-southeastward toward Minneapolis and St. Paul.

The proposed southern portion of the MinnCan Project would run west and south of Minneapolis and St. Paul to the 270,750 b/cd Flint Hills Resources Refinery in Rosemount.
