Tulsa, OK and Denver, CO – Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MMP) and TransMontaigne Partners L.P. (NYSE: TLP) announced today they are jointly assessing the development of a new refined products pipeline in South Texas. 

The potential project would include construction of an approximately 150-mile, 16-inch diameter pipeline capable of transporting 150,000 barrels per day (bpd) of gasoline, diesel fuel, propane and condensate from Magellan’s Corpus Christi, Texas terminal to TransMontaigne’s Brownsville, Texas terminal to meet market demand in Brownsville and other South Texas markets or for ultimate delivery to Mexico via truck, rail or connections to pipelines owned by TransMontaigne and third parties. If warranted by additional demand, the pipeline capacity could be expanded to 250,000 bpd.

Subject to receipt of necessary permits, regulatory approvals and sufficient customer demand, the potential pipeline could be operational by the end of 2018.
