Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. and TransMontaigne Partners L.P. has announced they are jointly assessing the development of a new refined products pipeline in South Texas.
The potential project would include construction of an approximately 150 mile, 16 in. dia. pipeline capable of transporting 150 000 bpd of gasoline, diesel fuel, propane and condensate from Magellan's Corpus Christi, Texas terminal to TransMontaigne's Brownsville, Texas terminal.These deliveries will help to meet market demand in Brownsville and other south Texas markets, or will be destined for ultimate delivery to Mexico via truck, rail or connections to pipelines owned by TransMontaigne and third parties. If warranted by additional demand, the pipeline capacity could be expanded to 250 000 bpd.
Subject to receipt of necessary permits, regulatory approvals and sufficient customer demand, the potential pipeline could be operational by the end of 2018.
