Medallion Pipeline Company, LLC, a subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, held an open season that ran through March 16 to solicit long-term commitments from shippers for firm transportation capacity on the fourth major expansion of Medallion’s existing crude oil pipeline system. The project proposed by the open season will further extend and expand the geographic scope of the 370-mile Medallion system:
- The Crane Extension is a proposed 100,000 bpd bi-directional crude oil pipeline which will extend 25 miles southwest from Medallion’s Midkiff Station in northwest Upton County, TX to an interconnection with Magellan Midstream Partners’ Longhorn Pipeline in east Crane County.
- An integral part of the overall project is a proposed 25,000-bpd expansion of Medallion’s Midkiff Lateral which extends in a northwesterly direction from the Midkiff Station to the Garden City Station in Glasscock County. As part of the expansion, the Midkiff Lateral will be reconfigured for bi-directional operations.
The Midkiff expansion is expected to commence full commercial operations shortly although certain segments of the project may start service on an interim basis earlier.
