Saddlehorn Pipeline’s successful open season during July and the subsequent increased volume commitments from shippers allowed Saddlehorn Pipeline Company, LLC to announce a further expansion on its pipeline. The pipeline’s capacity will be increased by a total of 100,000 barrels per day to a new total capacity of approximately 290,000 barrels per day.
Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P., Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. and Western Midstream Partners, L.P. jointly owns the Saddlehorn pipeline. The pipeline is currently capable of transporting 190,000 barrels per day of crude oil and condensate from the DJ and Powder River Basins to storage facilities in Cushing, Oklahoma owned by Magellan and Plains.
Following the addition of incremental pumping and storage capabilities, the higher capacity is expected to be available in late 2020.
