Saddlehorn Pipeline Announced Capacity Expansion

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.

Open Season Extended for Cushing to Houston Voyager Pipeline

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.
