Magellan Midstream Partners, LP received sufficient commitments during its recent open season to move into the next phase for its potential pipeline to Little Rock, AR. The partnership continues to finalize the scope and engineering estimates for this potential project, which may include using an existing third-party pipeline for a portion of the route.
Magellan wants to transport up to 75,000 bpd of gasoline, diesel fuel and jet fuel to Little Rock from the partnership’s Fort Smith, AR terminal, providing the Little Rock market access to refined products from Mid-Continent and Gulf Coast refineries via Magellan’s extensive refined petroleum products pipeline system.
Magellan is negotiating an agreement to use a portion of an existing third-party pipeline, which will be extended to the Fort Smith terminal and the Little Rock market with the newly constructed pipeline. The Little Rock pipeline could be operational in late 2015.
