Magellan Midstream Partners LP said on Friday it is considering an expansion of the western leg of its refined products pipeline system in Texas:
  • The pipeline's current capacity of 100,000 barrels per day (bpd) could increase to 140,000 bpd following the expansion.
  • The expansion would boost Magellan's capability to haul fuel from Gulf Coast refineries to demand centers in Abilene, Midland/Odessa and El Paso, Texas, markets in New Mexico and Arizona, and international markets in Mexico.
  • The expanded capacity could be operational by mid-2020, subject to customer interest and regulatory approval, the company said in a statement.
