KMEP, Valero start up Parkway Pipeline

Construction has been completed of the 141-mile, 16-in. Parkway Pipeline, a 50-50 joint venture of Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP (KMEP) and Valero Energy Corp., and the line is now transporting petroleum products from refineries in Norco, La., to an existing petroleum transportation hub in Collins, Miss., owned by Plantation Pipe Line Co. KMEP owns 51% of Plantation Pipe Line Co. and operates the system.

From this hub, the products will be transported by multiple pipeline systems, including Plantation, that serve the eastern US. The $250 million pipeline system has an initial capacity of 110,000 b/d and can be expanded to more than 200,000 b/d.

At its peak construction time, Parkway generated 1,200 temporary jobs, KMEP said.

Construction on the pipeline began in August 2012 (OGJ Online, Aug. 23, 2012).
