BridgeTex Pipeline Company, LLC (BridgeTex), owned 50/50 by Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. and Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., announced that it is expanding the BridgeTex pipeline's current capacity from the Permian Basin of 300 000 bpd to a new capacity of approximately 400 000 bpd.
The expanded capacity is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 following enhancements to existing pumps and related equipment.
The 20 in. BridgeTex pipeline system currently transports Permian Basin crude oil from Colorado City, Texas to the Houston Gulf Coast area. Beginning early in the second quarter of this year, a newly constructed origin point at Bryan, Texas, which is located 100 miles northwest of Houston, also will begin operations to accept shipments from the Eaglebine region for delivery to Houston.
