Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P., January 24, 2017

BridgeTex Pipeline Company, LLC (“BridgeTex”), owned 50/50 by Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. and Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., announced today that it is expanding the BridgeTex pipeline’s current capacity from the Permian Basin of 300,000 barrels per day (“bpd”) to a new capacity of approximately 400,000 bpd. The expanded capacity is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2017 following enhancements to existing pumps and related equipment.

The 20-inch BridgeTex pipeline system currently transports Permian Basin crude oil from Colorado City, Texas to the Houston Gulf Coast area. Beginning early in the second quarter of this year, a newly-constructed origin point at Bryan, Texas, which is located 100 miles northwest of Houston, also will begin operations to accept shipments from the Eaglebine region for delivery to Houston.
