Kinder Morgan Inc. announced the completion of the open season for refined petroleum products transportation capacity for its Roanoke expansion on the Plantation Pipe Line Co. Inc. system.
The Houston-based energy giant said it secured long-term committed volumes of 20,000 barrels per day through the open season. Plantation Pipe Line also expects to file a petition for declaratory order to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, according to a Dec. 17 news release. The expansion is scheduled to start up by April 1, 2020, subject to sufficient commitments received during the open season and regulatory approvals.
Plantation Pipe Line is investing $49 million on the project. Kinder Morgan Southeast Terminals LLC also has a $9 million investment on the project, backed by 10,000 bbl/d of long-term committed volumes.
The Roanoke expansion is designed to add about 21,000 barrels per day of capacity to the Plantation pipeline system. The Plantation system carries about 700,000 barrels per day of gasoline, jet fuel, diesel and biodiesel through its approximately 3,180-mile pipeline network that runs from Louisiana to the Washington, D.C., area.
