Magellan Midstream Acquires Houston-Area Crude Oil Pipeline

Magellan has acquired a crude oil pipeline in the Houston area, historically known as the West Columbia line from Shell Pipeline Company, LP. The 16” diameter pipeline is approximately 15 miles long and originates at Genoa Junction (please see accompanying map) and terminates at Magellan’s crude oil and refined products distribution terminal in East Houston, Texas. The West Columbia pipeline will provide an additional route for crude oil, particularly barrels from the Eagle Ford, to reach our East Houston terminal for storage or subsequent delivery into Shell’s reversed Ho-Ho system. The West Columbia pipeline has a capacity of approximately 150,000 barrels per day and is also bi-directional which will allow us to quickly adapt to the changing market needs of our customers.

Magellan’s existing Houston area distribution system has connections at Genoa and Speed Junctions and the company’s Galena Park and East Houston terminals. The acquisition of the West Columbia pipeline expands our current distribution system by providing additional capacity and also creates opportunities for future connections to third-party terminals in the Houston area.
