Medallion to build Wolfcamp Connector crude pipeline

Medallion Pipeline Co. LLC, a subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, reported the successful closing of the binding open season for its proposed crude oil pipeline, the Wolfcamp Connector, as well as its southward extension, the Reagan Gathering Extension, and will build both systems. The open season began in October and was supplemented Jan. 24 to reflect the modified route, configuration, and operations of the Reagan extension (OGJ Online, Oct. 30, 2013).

Medallion expects to place both pipelines in-service by the end of the year. The combined gathering system will extend roughly 112 miles through the Midland basin at an initial capacity of 65,000 b/d, connecting at the Colorado City, Tex., hub to take away pipelines—including Magellan Midstream Partner’s BridgeTex pipeline—accessing both Cushing and the Gulf Coast.

Additional pump stations could increase Wolfcamp Connector’s capacity to 100,000 b/d.

Magellan began building the 278,000-b/d BridgeTex line last year and expects to bring the 400-mile, 20-in. OD system into service by midyear. As part of the BridgeTex project, Magellan is expanding its Houston-area distribution system to 700,000 b/d delivery capacity from 350,000 b/d. BridgeTex will deliver both West Texas Intermediate and West Texas Sour crude grades.

Plains All American Pipeline LP last year announced four expansions to its Permian basin crude pipeline system, including an 80-mile, 20-in. OD line carrying 250,000 b/d between Midland, Tex., and Colorado City (OGJ Online, Dec. 11, 2013).
