BridgeTex to Boost Capacity of Permian-Gulf Coast Pipeline

BridgeTex to Boost Capacity of Permian-Gulf Coast Pipeline
Expanded crude oil pipeline will also add Eaglebine origin point.

The BridgeTex crude oil pipeline will soon be capable of shipping one-third more crude oil from the Permian Basin in West Texas to the Houston Gulf Coast area, stated Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (MMP). MMP owns BridgeTex Pipeline Co., LLC on a 50/50 basis with Plains All American Pipeline, L.P.

By enhancing existing pumps and related equipment, BridgeTex will boost the pipeline's capacity from 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) to approximately 400,000 bpd, according to MMP. The expanded 20-inch BridgeTex system, which carries Permian crude from Colorado City, Texas, to the Houston area, should become available during the second quarter of this year, the company said.

A new origin point at Bryan, Texas – 100 miles northwest of Houston – will also enable BridgeTex to accept shipments from the Eaglebine shale play beginning in the second quarter, MMP added.
