MPLX has launched a binding open season to assess shipper interest in moving more crude oil from Wyoming to Utah, Kallanish Energy reports.
The open season on the proposed SLC Core Pipeline System expansion began on Monday and will run through noon CDT on Oct. 23.
The pipeline runs from Fort Laramie, Wyoming, to Wahsatch Station, Utah, with connections via third-party pipelines to Salt Lake City and its refineries.
The proposed expansion would add 11,000 barrels per day of crude oil capacity and provide access to the Guernsey crude oil market hub.
The expansion would boost total SLC Core Pipeline System capacity to 56,000 barrels per day and is expected to begin service in first quarter 2022.
The SLC Core Pipeline System is owned by Tesoro Logistics Northwest Pipeline LLC, a subsidiary of Ohio-based MPLX, a subsidiary of Marathon Petroleum.
