Marathon's head of Andeavor Logistics, Don Sorensen, said on the company's analyst day webcast that Marathon is still pursuing a parallel path for its own Permian Gulf Coast pipeline.

Marathon's MPLX has a stake in the PCG, along with Delek, Energy Transfer Partners and Magellan, which is expected in-service in the fourth quarter of 2020. The line is expected to run from Midland, Texas, to Nederland, Texas, on the US Gulf Coast.
