Saddlehorn Pipeline to Expand and Add New Ft. Laramie Origin, Launches Open Season

Tulsa, OK – Saddlehorn Pipeline Company, LLC (“Saddlehorn”) announced today a capital-efficient expansion of the Saddlehorn pipeline and a new Ft. Laramie, Wyoming origin. In connection with these enhancements, Saddlehorn has launched an open season to solicit long-term commitments for capacity on the pipeline system. Interested customers must submit binding commitments by 12:00 p.m. Central Time on July 31, 2019.

The Saddlehorn pipeline, which is jointly owned by affiliates of Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P. (NYSE: MMP) (“Magellan”), Plains All American Pipeline, L.P. (NYSE: PAA) (“Plains”) and Western Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: WES) (“WES”), is currently capable of transporting approximately 190,000 barrels per day (“bpd”) of crude oil and condensate from the DJ and Powder River Basins to storage facilities in Cushing, Oklahoma owned by Magellan and Plains. Magellan serves as operator of the Saddlehorn pipeline.

The expansion will increase the pipeline’s capacity by up to 100,000 bpd, to a new total capacity of 290,000 bpd. The higher capacity is expected to be available in late 2020 following the addition of incremental pumping and storage capabilities. Saddlehorn will add the new Ft. Laramie origin by leasing capacity on third-party pipelines.
