Medallion Announces Sucessful Close of Crane and Midkiff Open Season
Irving, Texas, April 27, 2016 — Medallion Pipeline Company, LLC (“Medallion”), a subsidiary of Medallion Midstream LLC, today announced the successful closing of the binding open season for its proposed crude oil pipeline extension, (the “Crane Extension”), as well as the capacity expansion of its existing Midkiff Lateral pipeline, (the “Midkiff Expansion”). As previously announced, the binding open season for the Crane Extension and Midkiff Expansion commenced on February 24, 2016.
Based on a binding capacity bid received during the open season, Medallion has executed a long-term Transportation Service Agreement which provides a capacity commitment sufficient to move forward with the Crane Extension and the Midkiff Expansion project on a schedule that is expected to place the combined project in service during the second quarter of 2016.
The Crane Extension will extend approximately 25 miles southwest from the existing Midkiff Station in Upton County, Texas to an interconnection with Magellan Midstream Partners’ Longhorn Pipeline in east Crane County, Texas (the “Crane Station”). The Crane Extension will have a capacity of approximately 100,000 barrels per day and will be capable of providing bi-directional services.
As an integrated part of the overall project, the Midkiff Expansion will expand the current 75,000 barrel per day capacity of the Midkiff Lateral by approximately 25,000 barrels per day. As part of the Midkiff Expansion, the existing Midkiff Lateral will be reconfigured for bi-directional operations.
“The successful close of the Crane Extension and Midkiff Lateral Expansion Open Season typifies Medallion’s goal of providing the best service and greatest optionality for crude oil producers in the Midland Basin,” said Randy Lentz, CEO of Medallion. “Multiple interconnections offering access to quality markets is the best way to ensure long-term sustainable value for our customers.”
