Magellan Midstream to build condensate splitter

Pipeline operator Magellan Midstream Partners LP, Tulsa, reported it will spend $250 million to build a 50,000 b/d capacity condensate splitter and other facilities at its Corpus Christi, Tex., terminal, which serves the Eagle Ford shale.

The splitter construction is supported by a long-term commitment from Trafigura AG. Magellan said it could construct an additional 50,000-b/d capacity splitter at the site if demand grows.

The Magellan project will include 1 million bbl of storage, dock improvements, and two additional truck-rack bays and pipeline connectivity between Magellan’s terminal and Trafigura’s nearby facility.

The splitter is slated for operation in second-half 2016, Magellan said.

The Resilient Oilfield in the Internet of Things World

Tue, Sep 22, 2015

As we hear about the hype surrounding the Internet of Things, the oil and gas industry is questioning what is different than what is already being done. What is new?  Using sensors and connecting devices is nothing new to our mode of business and in many ways the industry exemplifies many principles of an industrial internet of things. How does the Internet of Things impact the oil and gas industry?

Prolific instrumentation and automation digitized the industry and has changed the approach to business models calling for a systems led approach.  Resilient Systems have the ability to adapt to changing circumstances while maintaining their central purpose.  A resilient system, such as Maximo, allows an asset intensive organization to leverage connected devices by merging real-time asset information with other critical asset information and using that information to create a more agile organization.  

Join this webcast, sponsored by IBM, to learn how about Internet of Things capabilities and resilient systems are impacting the landscape of the oil and gas industry.
