Sunoco Logistics Partners LP received enough binding commitments from shippers during the open season for Sunoco Pipeline LP and Inland Corp.’s Allegheny Access pipeline project to advance the project. Allegheny Access will transport refined products from the Midwest to eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania markets.
Sunoco expects the pipeline to have an initial capacity of 85,000 b/d, with the ability to expand to 110,000 b/d. The project will use a combination of new and existing pipe in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The company expects Allegheny Access to enter service first-half 2014.
Sunoco is operator and 83.3% shareholder of Inland.
