Medallion Pipeline Company, LLC (Medallion), a subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, has announced a binding open season which solicits long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on the fifth major expansion of Medallion’s existing crude oil pipeline system. With the addition of the current project proposed by the open season, and two other projects proposed in two successful preceding open seasons in February 2016, Medallion’s operations will consist of approximately 380 miles of pipeline facilities providing shippers with significant flexibility to move crude oil production in the region to multiple markets via multiple transportation routes:
- The ‘Martin Lateral’ is a proposed 25 000 bpd crude oil pipeline, which will aggregate crude oil from multiple points of origin in Martin County, Texas and extend in a southeasterly direction to a point of destination at the new Midland Hub in Midland County, Texas.
- The ‘Midland Lateral’ is a proposed bi-directional crude oil pipeline, which will commence at the interconnection with the Martin Lateral at the Midland Hub and extend in a southeasterly direction to the existing Garden City Station where it interconnects with Medallion Pipeline’s existing Wolfcamp Connector mainline, the Reagan Gathering Extension, and the Midkiff Lateral, as expanded and extended. The Midland Lateral is proposed to be capable of transporting 25 000 bpd of crude oil from the Midland Hub to the Garden City Station and 90 000 bpd of crude oil from the Garden City Station to the Midland Hub.
Medallion is conducting the binding open season to obtain long-term volume commitments for firm transportation capacity on the Martin Lateral and the Midland Lateral (Expansion Project). The open season provides an opportunity for interested shippers to acquire long-term firm capacity, under minimum 10 year term Transportation Service Agreements and other eligibility requirements, as committed firm shippers on the Expansion Project. The Expansion Project is expected to commence full commercial operations in the third quarter of 2016, although certain segments of the Expansion Project may commence service on an interim basis on an earlier date.

The open season began on Monday, 18 April 2016 and ends on Wednesday, 11 May 2016.

Bona fide prospective shippers may obtain copies of the transportation service agreement, as well as the proposed Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Texas Railroad Commission Tariffs (the confidential open season documents), by contacting the Medallion representative listed below.
