Pipeline operators Plains All American Pipeline, Marathon Petroleum, and BP Oil Pipeline Co are launching a non-binding open season to receive shipper interest in its proposed reversal of the Capline pipeline that moves crude from St. James, Louisiana to Patoka, Illinois.
If the open season is successful and the operators decide to continue with its proposal, the reverse flow could be operational by the second half of 2022. The reversed Capline pipeline would initially have a capacity of 300,000 barrels per day and would be able to receive crude from connecting carriers at Patoka.
Marathon Pipe Line operates the pipeline and owns the asset along with Plains All American Pipeline and BP Oil Pipeline Co.
The open season will be held through November 17, 2017.
