An extension of the open season to solicit commitments from shippers for the proposed Voyager Pipeline was announced by Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. and Navigator Energy Service. The pipeline will transport various grades of light crude oil and condensate from Cushing, Oklahoma to Houston, Texas.
The pipeline would include construction of nearly 500 miles of 20 in. or 24 in. diameter pipeline from Magellan's terminal in Cushing to Magellan's terminal in East Houston. Binding commitments are now due by noon of 31 May 2019 CDT.
At the Cushing origin, the Voyager Pipeline would provide shippers option to originate deliveries at Cushing from the Magellan-operated Saddlehorn Pipeline serving the Rockies and Bakken production regions, Navigator's Glass Mountain Pipeline serving the Mid-Continent basin, as well as other connections within the strategic Cushing crude oil hub.
At the destination, Magellan's comprehensive Houston crude oil distribution system could further deliver the multiple grades of crude oil to the Houston and Texas City refineries or to crude oil export facilities, such as the terminal owned by Seabrook Logistics, LLC, which is owned 50% by Magellan.
The pipeline is expected to have an initial capacity of at least 300,000 bpd and it is planned to be operational in late 2020, subject to receipt of sufficient customer commitments and all necessary permits and approvals.
