Magellan Resumes Refined Products Distribution at Kansas City Terminal

TULSA, Okla. – Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.’s Kansas City, Kansas terminal resumed operations at its truck loading facility at 3 p.m. (Central) today. Safely reopening the truck loading facility assists in providing adequate fuel supplies for local retailers.  In addition, the company has resumed partial operations of its pipeline system serving the Kansas City Terminal which also serves other petroleum distribution terminals further north on its pipeline system. 

Operations of the truck loading facility and pipeline system were temporarily disrupted when a fire ignited after an apparent lightning strike at an above ground storage tank at approximately 7:45 p.m. last night.

“The tank fire remains contained allowing us to safely resume operations with minimal supply disruptions,” said Bruce Heine, Magellan spokesman.

The fire was isolated to one tank that contained approximately 28,000 barrels of unleaded gasoline at the time of the event. 

No injuries have occurred as a result of the event.  Federal, state and local authorities remain on the scene.

Magellan's Kansas City terminal provides distribution services for gasoline, gasoline / ethanol blends, diesel and jet fuel for the local marketplace.
