Medallion Midstream Asks for Bids for New Expansion

Irving-based Medallion Midstream announced an open season on Monday and is asking for bids as it anticipates a planned expansion.

The West Texas crude oil pipeline system will make a major expansion in the Midland Basin. The oil field is part of the larger Permian Basin, which has seen enormous growth in oil and gas production over the last few years.

Medallion said that the plan was to place new 16-inch pipes along its existing pipeline system, without specifying how many miles would be added, nor the capacity.

Currently, the system runs approximately 700 miles of six-inch diameter pipe.

The expansion comes a week after Oryx Midstream Services announced its own expansion of regional crude oil pipeline in which it will add 180 miles to its existing system.
